Lebanon Election: And The Winner is....Saad Hariri

June 8, 2009 - The anti-Syrian (and pro-Western) coalition led by Saad Hariri (son of assassinated Prime Minister) won the parliamentary elections on Sunday.

Absolutely No Tracks In The Air France Tragedy

June 5, 2009 - Contrarily to what has been officially announced two days ago, the wreckages found by the Brazilian Air Force do not belong to the lost Airbus and the search efforts have to restart from scratch, without any clue about the crash location.
