A car bomb in January sent a wall of keys ricocheting through Ali Dabak hardware store like speeding bullets, recalled shopkeeper Hajj Hasan, whose shop faces one of the six sites where explosions killed 75 people in Beirut's southern suburbs over the past year.Like thousands of other people living and working in the targeted neighborhoods of Bir Hasan, Ruwaiss and Haret Hreik, Hasan is trying to go back to life as it was before the attack.Around the corner from Hasan, the owner of Orkids clothing shop, Mona, was in good spirits. Business had picked up in recent weeks, and she was chatting with a friend outside her store. Hasan's wife, for example, has not visited the hardware shop since Jan. 21, when a car, packed with mortar bombs, killed four people and wounded 45 .A month after the bombing near Hasan's shop, for example, a construction worker climbed up to replace the signage for a neighboring home appliance store.
