The Heroes of the Right-Wing Lebanese Opposition: From As-Safir (today): "Unknown people shot yesterday the citizen Tawfiq `Atallah Nasir in the area of `Ayn Al-Muraysah and injured him in his foot, and then they fled to un unknown area after mistaking him for a Syrian worker because [sic] he sold flowers regularly at the Corniche. The assailants stopped Nasir who came to work daily from Burj Al-Barajnah and worked in Hamrah, Rawshah, and `Ayn Al-Muraysah to make his living selling flowers. They asked about the region where he came from, and did not like the matter, and shot him in his feet, and left him bleeding before a passerby moved him to one of the hospitals for treatment."
