A series of bombings have rocked Beirut in the past couple of weeks, killing dozens and injuring many more, and now sparking an online campaign, #NotAMartyr, that encourages people to voice their frustrations with the ongoing violence.


The latest explosion comes just days after the car bomb attack that killed Lebanon’s former Finance Minister and prominent Sunni politician Mohammed Chatah and four others. Among the dead is 16-year-old Mohammad Chaar who was dubbed a "martyr" by some, resulting in an outpouring of rage on social media and giving life to the #NotAMartyr campaign.


Reflecting the last photograph of Chaar — a selfie he took with friends just moments before he was killed — individuals have posted their own selfies to Facebook and Twitter expressing their rage. [Link]
