Over Christmas Kamal had told his wife that it was high time he left Afghanistan, where he ventured seven years ago to launch La Taverne du Liban, a trendy eatery in Kabul known for its Lebanese cuisine and international clientele.The cards had seemingly fallen into place for Kamal to start anew in his home country.But his plans were cut short on Friday just after 7 p.m., when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside the gate of his restaurant, clearing the path for two gunmen to rush in and fire on diners, killing Hamade and another Lebanese national, Wabel Abdallah, the International Monetary Fund's resident representative, along with 19 others. Nabila was in her Ras Beirut home when she first learned that Kamal's restaurant had been attacked.Doucet paid a personal tribute to the restaurant owner, and recounted how, at the time of the attack, he had grabbed his gun from his office in a heroic attempt to stave off the attackers.They had discussed matters related to Abdallah's work representing the fund in Afghanistan. He was in the office when he heard that his colleague and friend of many years had been a casualty in the tragic attack.
