  • Description

    Hundreds of people took part in a motorcade through the streets of the Lebanese capital of Beirut on Thursday (29 April) to draw attention to the kidnapping of Syrian social worker Marie Rose Boulos.

    Mrs. Boulos was kidnapped by four armed and masked people on 10 April near Brummana north of Beirut and has not been heard of since.

    Her kidnapping has caused distress in both Christian and Moslem communities in the Lebanon as she is widely acclaimed for her untiring efforts to bring peace and succour to anyone who has needed help during the year long civil war.

    She is the director of the St. Luke's school for retarded children in Lebanon and is well known for her work among retarded and underprivileged children not only there but in other Arab countries.

    Children were among the soldiers, women's groups and civilians who took part in the motorcade. Prior to the demonstration an appeal was made by the World Council for Christians to her captors to release her unharmed.
