A big thanks to rouba, , , and Liliane (Lebanon Aggregator) for the link. According to one eye witness by the name of Andrew, and supported by The Age’s Paul Millar:
Suburban street like ‘downtown Beirut’ after shooting, firebombing
June 23, 2011 – 11:23AM
A witness to the drive-by shooting of a house in Coolaroo this morning said the area was becoming a war zone after the same house was yesterday firebombed in a separate attack.
The witness, who wanted to be known only as Andrew, said he saw a small truck ram in the front of the house and heard an exchange of swearing before shots were fired.
“I saw one guy sort of ducking and weaving and then there were shots fired,” Andrew said.
“It sounded like more than one weapon … I only saw one guy shooting though.
“It’s a rough neighbourhood, and this house has been targeted a few times … its like a war, the whole neighbourhood is sick of it.
“There’s always comings and goings at all times of night and drug dealing going on.
“We are not living in downtown Beirut.”
Andrew, I couldn’t agree with you more. You are definitely not living in downtown Beirut because if you could afford to, this is where you’d be living:
So since Andrew has no last name and there are no further details on him, I will be sending him his Looks Like Beirut certificate via the journalist Paul Millar. I’ll also be including an additional certificate for Paul in recognition for that spectacular title for his article.
