Detlev Mehlis will finally publish his report into the murder of former Lebanese PM Rafiq Al-Hariri this Friday.
The streets of Damascus will echo with the sounds of radio news this Friday.
I remember walking through Souq Al-Jumaa on the first day after the start of the Iraq War. Damascus was visibly tense. Taxis stopped playing their music, shops re-tuned their radios. This Friday will be another Friday 21 March 2003.
Wondering whether war was about to spread into Syria, wondering whether the normality and banality of life was about to end.
Souq Al-Jumaa has never felt the same since.
