Anti-Syrian Lebanese MP Walid Eido, his son were assassinated by massive explosion in their car: Killed 10
June 13, 2007
The blast which ripped through Beirut’s waterfront Manara district also killed Eido’s two bodyguards and injured scores of civilians. Eido belonged to the ruling party headed by Saad Hariri, whose father, former prime minister Rafiq Hariri, was murdered in similar circumstances in 2005. An international tribunal has been set up to prosecute the crime’s suspected perpetrators, including members of the Syrian Assad regime.
