The youngest martyr is Gebran Tueni, the editor of daily newspaper An-Nahar. Here is the story of his life and death, in two parts:
Early Monday morning, December 12th, Gebran Tueni drove from his home in Mkalless, on the hillside north-east of downtown, to his office. In a curve of the road sixty kilograms of explosives detonated when he passed. His armoured limousine was blown right through the guard-rails.

During the funeral service, in the orthodox church right behind the An-Nahar building, the old Ghassan Tueni spoke reconciliatory words. "We must bury the mistrust between the warring parties. Let there be an end to bloodshed. To reach the Lebanon of tomorrow, we must turn the page."
