A video of the massive bomb blast on Tuesday in Lebanon's capital Beirut remains the center of discussion. In it, a young woman is seen posing for the cameraman for the wedding video. The young woman smiled and smiled as soon as she was ready for the next pose when the shock web of the explosion caused everything around to turn.
Palestinian Ahmed Erekat was on his way to his sister’s wedding when he was shot and killed by Israeli forces. Palestinian officials say it follows “a tragically familiar pattern” and comes less than a month after the death of...
