February 25th, 2007 · No Comments · Lebanon, Media

Editor of the Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper Joseph Samaha died in London this morning after suffering a heart attack.

The anti-sectarian, leftist, secular journalist founded As Safir in the 1970s, and then Al Hayat.

Just yesterday, he wrote a column entitled “Tuning of moves and slogans” in Al Akhbar. It criticised the government and the opposition for failing to break the deadlock.
