Day of mourning

Friends carry the coffin of one of the protesters killed by either the army or right-wing Lebanese Forces (the situation remains confused).

According to reports passed on to Sursock the first demonstrator was killed by a sniper firing out of Ain Rumaini, a Christian area in south Beirut. He was an Amal Movement official attempting to police a demonstration against electricity shortages. Others then came out to protest against his death and were killed when they were confronted by Lebanese troops. The army blames "gunmen in civilian clothing".

I will update as soon as it becomes clear.
