The southern town of Haddatha bid farewell Tuesday to Abbas Karnib, who died as a result of his wounds Monday after being caught in the Jan. 2 suicide bombing that struck Beirut's southern suburbs.Karnib's father, known as Abu Moussa, was visibly grief-stricken, leaning on his cane for support as he accepted condolences from colleagues and friends of his late son, speaking of martyrdom, patience and pain. Thirteen years after losing his son Hussein, Abbas' brother, who died fighting to expel Israeli forces from southern Lebanon, Abu Moussa followed his youngest son's coffin through the same streets and farmland. Karnib is survived by his wife and four children, the station said, adding that he had been held in Israeli prisons.
