The Lebanese government should coordinate with European governments to look into the fate of missing Lebanese journalist Samir Kassab, the director of a media freedom NGO said Sunday, five years after Kassab was kidnapped in Syria.Mhanna also called on political forces that took over territory previously occupied by Daesh in Syria to look for any signs of Kassab.Having taken the route from southern Turkey, they had planned to stay only two nights to cover the Eid al-Adha festivities in Aleppo.To commemorate the anniversary of his disappearance, Batroun's Hardin and Beit Kassab Municipality hosted a meeting of Kassab's loved ones to call on the government and concerned authorities to take action.Despite allegations that the Lebanese government has done nothing to follow up on the case, a source from the presidential palace said that the government has and continues to investigate.
