A crowd gathered in the chill, peeking into the ambulance, mere feet away from the husk of twisted metal that used to be a van.Chunks of metal were strewn around outside the cordoned off area, and tiny pieces of flesh stuck to nearby cars, a faint scent of blood in the air.The window of a nearby Range Rover was also broken – one civil defense volunteer said the suicide bomber's head flew through the air and smashed into the car window by the force of the explosion. Hasan Msheik also remained steadfast, a pained but determined look on his face, outside the emergency room of Kamal Jumblatt Hospital in this majority Druze neighborhood, surrounded by scores of friends and onlookers.His brother Hussein was driving the van when the suicide bomber, riding inside, detonated his explosives. Hasan rushed to the scene and instantly recognized the van. An official on the scene said there was a limited civilian presence in the immediate area surrounding the bombing, which spared the lives of many innocents.
