"I don't know what to say anymore," Layla Yaacoub says, her voice breaking.Yaacoub, the mother of the late Roula Yaacoub, is convinced her 31-year-old daughter was beaten to death -- and she is not alone.Despite the release last week of a 13-page report that cleared Roula Yaacoub's husband, Karam al-Bazzi, of any role in her death, KAFA says the fight is far from over. The council said three autopsy reports, including one by a committee of doctors from the Beirut Order of Physicians, did not find any medical evidence indicating that the cause of death was a blow to the head as alleged by Yaacoub's relatives.One of those lawyers, Marie-Rose Zalzal, is adamant that the Yaacoub family will see justice.
