An-Nahar has a news story about the "death" of a Syrian who allegedly stole a car. Read the account; it just does not make sense. They tell you that Lebanonese security forces shot warning shots, and yet, they simply said that Muhammad (the driver of the car) died. He must have had a cardiac arrest just at that moment. Will Kofi Annan investigate? Will posters demanding the truth of his murder at the hand of Lebanonese police be plastered around Beirut? Will the Security Council convene this evening? This is the truth that I am after.
