Assassin strikes resistance leader

Imad Mughniyeh, a major militant figure wanted by the US for his suspected role in the 1983 bombing of US barracks in Beirut, was killed in a car bomb.

The AP news agency has the story.

The attack on the barracks was an audacious act that rescued Lebanon from a prolonged US and French military occupation—and delayed a resurgent US imperialism for at least a decade. There will be reams of editorials on the death of a "master terrorist", but Sursock has no doubt that history will judge Mughniyeh as a patriot and a fighter.
