Zein, 12 years old, killed in Tyre, Lebanon

Her name was Zein. She was 12 years old. She was found killed yesterday under the rubble of the building where she lived in Tyre. She was holding her mother's hand so tight that the rescuers had trouble separating them. Her two brothers, aged 10 and 13 are still under the rubble, as rescuers were interrupted by Israeli bombing close by and had to abandon the digging.

She is one of 350 children under 12 who were killed during 4 weeks of war on Lebanon.
