This past Saturday, a close-knit group of men who work and live at the Mediane diaper factory in Zahle kicked back, just as they usually do, for a night of conversation, music and drinks. The men, all of whom are migrant workers from India, stayed outside till the early morning hours, when they were approached by two Lebanese men who jumped over the wall surrounding the factory and told them to go inside because they were making too much noise.All of the men who spoke with The Daily Star asked that their real names not be used.One of the Lebanese men ran away, and CCTV footage later showed that he hid inside the factory premises, according to the owner of the factory, Elie Makhoul.A second man was also shot in the head and remains in a coma at L'Hopital Libano-Francais in Zahle.The men The Daily Star spoke with Tuesday said they had not previously been approached by any media.
