Lebanese Lawmaker Killed in Car Bomb

An outspoken lawmaker and journalist in Lebanon (Gebran Tueni, 48) was recently killed by a car bomb and many are blaming Syria for his death as he was a constant critic of the country's involvement in Lebanon. Below are three articles with more information on the topic:

The strongest evidence for Syria's involvement in Gebran Tueni's murder (besides preliminary UN reports that already link Syria to Hariri's death) is Mr. Tueni's claim that he was warned earlier this year by the UN that his name was on a hit list of Syrian Agents.
