There were tragic scenes in Beirut and nearby Junieh on Monday when three Lebanese victims were buried. It was a scene repeated in several Arab countries in recent days as the one hundred and six people who died in the shot-down Libyan aircraft were buried.
At the three individual funerals in Lebanon, crowds were orderly, expressing only grief.
One of the funerals was of Nelly Jean Karam, an air hostess aboard the aircraft which was shot down by Israeli fighters last Wednesday (21 February). The second funeral was of a woman who was to have been married the previous day. Her wedding dress and photographs were carried in procession. The third funeral was of Aref Fouad Farra. Prime Minister Saeb Salam watched the funeral as the coffin was carried out of a mosque to be taken for burial.
