Antoine Harb laid to rest after heart attack
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The head of cultural affairs at the Education Ministry, Antoine Harb, was laid to rest Thursday in his hometown of Chekka. 

The funeral services, held in the Our Lady of Chekka Church in the northern coastal town, were attended by caretaker Education Minister Hassan Diab, representing President Michel Sleiman, as well as several MPs, ministers and other officials. 

Harb, who was also the head of the UNESCO Palace, passed away due to a sudden heart attack on Christmas Eve. Diab decorated Harb with the president’s medal with a knight grade. 

Speaking at the funeral, Lebanese Communist Party Secretary-General Khaled Hadadeh described Harb as a man “who struggled throughout his life for a free and independent Lebanon.”
