Road to Damascus

Road to Damascus As one of the world's leading Middle East reporters, Robert Fisk has lived in Lebanon for the past 30 years. He gives his unique view on what's happening in the region.
"I knew Hariri very well," Fisk confides. He witnessed Hariri's assassination and his investigation into the murder placed his own life in danger. But despite this, he's optimistic about the future. "The young people educated abroad are uncontaminated by sectarianism," he states. "They're not interested in war. They go clubbing together - Muslim and Christian."
