The morning of June 8, 5-year-old Mohammad al-Khawli picked up the LL1,500 his father had left on the table to get cigarettes for his mother and ice cream for himself.For a 5-year-old who left Homs, Syria, less than three years ago for Halba in north Lebanon, Khawli was well-adjusted."He used to always give [Khawli] free things from the store, like chips".Seated on a chair in her home, just a five-minute walk from where Khawli's family lives, N.A.'s mother appeared desperate to tell her side of a brutal story that has left her deeply troubled over the last 10 days. The father went to see if what his son said was true and upon finding the young boy's body, he called the police and turned N.A. in. His family said he had not yet been tried and was scheduled to be transferred to Roumieh Prison this week. For the family, the damage done by N.A.'s actions has just begun.
