A cross-channel news segment commemorating the disappearance 36 years ago of Amal Movement founder Musa Sadr is set to air Sunday evening, a move that some see as compensation for the recent cancellation of an annual tribute to the imam.After the introduction, all news broadcasts will simultaneously switch to a televised speech given by Amal Movement leader Speaker Nabih Berri, said Soueid.In previous years, the event has been held in the Bekaa Valley, Beirut, Nabatieh or Tyre, and has attracted tens of thousands of supporters -- as well as Sunni, Shiite and Christian figures -- who come to hear Berri and pay tribute to Sadr's legacy.A recently released book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Kai Bird claimed that Sadr and his friends were executed in Libya at the behest of Mohammad Beheshti, an Iranian scholar close to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
