This has been an exceptionally tough topic to write about. I won’t pretend Yves was one of my best friends, he was an acquaintance. But, his cold-blooded murder shook us all. Of course, my first instinct was getting the actual story, from eye witnesses and victims of the barbaric attack, and I did. But, right before I hit publish, I deleted it, for several reasons. What’s the point of sharing the exact details and timeframe? It’ll just fuel more “salon talks” of the Lebanese, who are often fascinated by these (once-rare) crimes.
