Lebanese minister assassinated
ierre Gemayel, a Lebanese cabinet minister and leader of the Christian Phalange party, has been shot and killed in Beirut, according to security sources. The sources said his convoy was attacked in the Christian Sin el-Fil neighbourhood of Beirut. The Phalange party Voice of Lebanon radio station confirmed his death.
The shooting comes amid increased tensions in Lebanon. Shia ministers withdrew from the cabinet two weeks ago in protest over power-sharing in Lebanon’s government, and Hezbollah is considering street demonstrations if early elections or a national unity government are not forthcoming.
