These Lebanese teenagers were hanging out in Beirut and took the picture shown above right before the explosion took place today. Fortunately, none of them died but from what I heard, one of them was seriously wounded. Let’s hope that he recovers quickly and rejoins his friends.


The other tragic story that got circulated today was that of the mother of Mohamad Chatah’s bodyguard (Mohammad Tarek Badr) who was running from one hospital to the other to see where her son’s body is but could not find him anywhere.
