Mob kills murderer during crime re-enactment

Lebanese villagers on Thursday killed the murderer of two grandparents and their two young grandchildren as he was re-enacting the crime in front of police, reported the state-run National News Agency.
The deceased was identified as Mohammed Salim Mosallam, who allegedly on Wednesday shot to death Youssef Abu Merhi, 75, and his wife Kawthar, 70, along with their grandchildren Zeina, 7, and Amneh, 9 in the southern Lebanese village of Ktirmaya.
When the villagers saw Mosallam near the murder scene with police, they managed to push past the officials and start hitting the killer, who suffered severe wounds.
Local radio broadcasts said villagers then chased the police unit to the hospital and managed to drag Mosallam out of the car and kill him.
The villagers then tied his body to a car and drove to Ktirmaya's main square.
Once they reached the village centre, they stripped the body of clothing, tied metal wire around its neck and hung it on a pole.
According to local broadcasts, the villagers believed the man has done a "very ugly crime for no reason and he deserved to be punished immediately."
It was not clear why Mosallam might have killed the family.
The mother of the two children works as a teacher at a nearby school and is divorced from their father, Mohammed Mustafa al-Rawwas, who is said to be living abroad. The mother was at school when the murder took place.
There was no comment from the Lebanese police regarding the incident. - Sapa-dpa
