Lebanese journalist Mazen Diab, who was found murdered in his apartment in Amman last Friday, was laid to rest by a crowd of relatives, colleagues and celebrities in Beirut Monday.Four men, one of whom had personal problems with Diab, were behind the murder that took place at his apartment in Mecca Street, Amman.A colleague said Diab was supposed to attend an engagement of one of his friends that day, causing them to be worried when he did not answer his phone. Jordanian authorities released a statement Saturday saying they had arrested the four suspects, and that the cause of Diab's death was an internal bleeding after the victim was hit with a sharp object.In 2008, Diab was awarded Best Lebanese Media Personality by the Jaras Channel.
