In Publisher’s Death, Lebanese See One More Unsolved Murder

Assassinations that go unsolved or unpunished are the norm in Lebanon. The murder last week of publisher and activist Lokman Slim, who was found shot in his car, is unlikely to be the exception.

Slim’s family and friends gathered at his home for a memorial service on Feb. 11, with some speculating that Hezbollah might have been involved. The 58-year-old public intellectual was a rare high-profile critic of the group from within Lebanon’s Shiite Muslim community. He was born in Haret Hreik, a southern suburb of Beirut under Hezbollah’s control, and still lived there at the time of his death.

It's not unsolved but it will probably go unpunished.
