Attempted Assassination on Freedom of Expression in Lebanon

Prominent anti-Syrian news anchor May Chidiac was seriously wounded when her car exploded north of Beirut on Sunday, as Lebanon awaits the findings of a U.N. probe into the killing of former Prime Minister Rafik Al-Hariri.

Lebanon will ask the United States and France to help train its security forces following a string of bombings and assassinations targetting Lebanon's freedom activitists. The world should stand united against killers and murderers of freedom.

Late Sunday, Hotel-Dieu Hospital in Beirut reported that Chidiac's left arm and leg were severed in the blast and her right leg and pelvis were broken. A hospital statement said she was suffering from various injuries and burns over her body, and that her vital signs were "stable" but would need careful monitoring. This is not the answer for asking for freedom. Everyone deserves a decent life.

My heart is bleeding. This is the only way to describe how I feel now.
