"Rafik Hariri" Beirut Favorite Tip by RblWthACoz
Beirut General: 90 reviews and 86 photos
Favorite thing: On Valentine's Day, 2005, Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated by a massive bomb. His body lies entombed next to the large mosque he constructed. It is easy to spot where he lies. Just look for the very large white tent close to Martyr's Square.
This of course is a very sensitive issue that aroused the passions of the Lebanese people enough to push for the removal of all Syrian troops who had been stationed there for 30 years. Pictures of Hariri are everywhere...and there are a few counters that mark the number of days since the bombing.
