Events that shaped the countries of the Mediterranean
An episode from the series ECHOES OF HISTORY
Imam Musa Sadr was an impressive figure who enjoyed great moral and political stature in Lebanon in the 1970s.
However, the man is disconcerting and not only in his home country. Three years after the beginning of the civil war, Musa Sadr mysteriously disappears during a trip to Libya where he was to meet President Gaddafi.
If he was killed, as seems likely, who ordered his execution?
