Lebanon: Honoring Gibran Tueni

On December 12, 2005, Gibran Tueni, Member of Parliament and publisher of An-Nahar daily newspaper, was murdered in Beirut for standing for Lebanon's freedom and advocating for unity and cooperation among the country's diverse communities. His is one of a long list of political assassinations intended to destabilize Lebanon.

The United States and its international partners remain committed to supporting Lebanon's legitimate and democratically elected government and the Lebanese people who deserve a prosperous and secure country in which the people are free to fully participate in their political process without fear of violence.
