On a rainy Sunday in downtown Beirut, in
St. George Cathedral at Place d'Etoile, the family of murdered Lebanese journalist
Gebran Tueni gathered with the staff of his newspaper, Al-Nahar
, to hold
a memorial marking the fifth anniversary of Tueni's assassination. The memorial
was held in the same church where Tueni was married in 2001, and where his
funeral was held in 2005, as if to complete the circle of life and memory.
