Israeili air strikes kill 7 Canadians in Lebanon
Seven Canadians are dead, six of them possibly members of the same Montreal family, after an Israeli air strike in Lebanon. Three more were seriously injured.
The Department of Foreign Affairs did not release their names.
However, reports said the dead included a family of four children, their mother, and her husband's uncle. They were vacationing in Aitarun, just 50 kilometres south of Beirut.
The mother has been identified by The Globe and Mail as Amira Al-Akhras, with her children Salaan, 1, Ahamed, 3, Zeinab, 5, and Saja, 7. Another female relative was also killed.
Mahmoud Akhras told The Canadian Press his father was killed in the attack, and said he was a cousin of the Canadian victims. He claimed consular officials were unable to offer much help.
"We're seeing that people are not really that interested," he told CP by phone. "What are they waiting for? More victims?"
