Thousands still missing 20 years after Lebanese civil war



The Lebanese government must act to investigate the fate of thousands of people still missing 20 years after the end of its brutal civil war, Amnesty International will say in a new report to be released on 14 April.


Never Forgotten: Lebanon’s Missing People highlights how the disappearances have left affected families in a permanent state of limbo, and those responsible unaccountable.
