Dozens of demonstrators gathered Sunday in Downtown Beirut to demand government action to rescue missing photojournalist Samir Kassab.Protesters included family, friends, the head of Lebanon's Press Syndicate and others who held signs calling for Kassab's swift return and the government's intervention on his behalf while lamenting the four year wait for news on his case.According to demonstrators, the location of the protest was chosen to intentionally highlight the significance of Kassab's case.Assaf added that Kassab should have been, and had the right to be, included "in the negotiations between the Lebanese government and kidnappers of the [Lebanese Army servicemen]," referring to the recent cease-fire deal with militants at the end of the "Fajr al-Joroud" Army offensive against Daesh (ISIS) that included the return of bodies of slain soldiers.
