Lebanon today woke up to find that their facebook timeline was filled with a photo of a gunmen walking beside an army vehicle, a photo that was taken in yesterday’s clashes in Saida.

The funny fact here, is that the reason I started doing this blog, is to clarify and recognize the person who toke a photo. and today a photo taken by Mohammed Zaatari from Associated Press was going viral on social media after publishing it on Annahar Newspaper, but sadly without the name of Zaatari, so for that I want to say thank you for the really meaningful photo.

the photo I’m talking about is the 9th one in this week Lebanese POW.

And before I leave you with the photos, I would like to congratulate Wassim Nasser for breaking a local record in swimming, you can see it in the last photo.

Following his failure to break Lebanon’s long distance swimming record last year, Wassim Nasser broke that record by completing a 45Km swim from Beirut to Amchit! The previous record was held by Abdel-Latif Abu al-Hauf who swam 42Km back in the 1960s. (plus961 - Alaa Fayyad)
