There was an air of defiance around the residents of Tayyouneh Tuesday morning as they surveyed the damage caused by an overnight suicide bombing.Ibrahim, who asked that his name be changed, is a resident of Tayyouneh who was watching a World Cup game at the nearby Abu Assaf cafe shortly before midnight when the car bomb went off, shattering the calm and jubilation of the neighborhood.Security officers were still searching for the remains of Abdul-Karim Hodroj, the General Security officer that residents say confronted the suicide bomber just before the explosion.Most of the wounded had been watching the Brazil-Cameroon match at the cafe but were saved by the open space on the other side of the car bomb – an open roundabout and the wide expanse of Horsh Beirut, dissipating the force of the explosion.
