Lebanon eyes TNC help on Imam Sadr

I would be both shocked and ecstatic if the Imam was still alive. At the least, I hope his family and supporters finally get closure. PressTV: “The Lebanese government has decided to recognize the National Transitional Council in Libya,” read a statement released after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday. “Foreign Minister Adnan Mansur has also been delegated to submit plans for cooperation between Lebanese authorities and all relevant and emerging Libyan authorities to uncover the fate of Imam Moussa Sadr and his companions,” it added. Lebanon has never stopped searching for Sadr and his comrades and now there is a real and present opportunity to discover what became of them, Mansur added. Imam Moussa Sadr was a greatly popular and highly venerated Lebanese Shia cleric of an Iranian descent, who disappeared on Aug. 31, 1978 in a visit to Libya. Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah on Monday called on Libyan fighters to help find Imam Moussa al-Sadr and two of his companions. “We are full of hope that they will be freed by your (Libyan fighters’) hands and returned to their families,” Hezbollah said in a statement.
