SIDON, Lebanon: Security forces Tuesday handed over the remains of a suicide bomber who blew himself up outside the Iranian Embassy last year to his relatives.
Nineteen-year-old Mouin Abu Dahr was one of the two suicide bombers involved in the Nov. 19 attack outside the Iranian Embassy in the Beirut neighborhood of Bir Hasan.
Authorities handed his remains over to his family who buried him in the coastal city of Sidon’s cemetery.
Abu Dahr reportedly left Lebanon for Sweden a couple of years ago and later returned to the region to fight with rebels seeking to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.
