Beirut - A young man with a hand held rocket-propelled grenade launcher in Palestinian camp called Beddawi, which is north of Tripoli. I covered the  intense internecine fighting between the Palestinians. I ended up spending two months in Lebanon on this story, my first trip there. I later made two more trips to the country of Lebanon. During this period, each morning before 9:30 AM, the situations nearly got me killed for two weeks straight. Out of a number of difficult assignments I have done, I never had a run of bad joss like that one.
