Lokman Slim, a publisher and activist, was found dead in a car parked in a town between the villages of Tufahta and Addousiyeh on Thursday. His sister, Rasha Al Ameer, commented on his death in Beirut, Thursday.

"I don't know (who killed him). You always have a lot of enemies in politics. He also had a lot of moral enemies. If I saw you stealing something, I have to act," said Al Ameer.

Slim's body was then taken to public hospital in Sidon where an autopsy showed he was shot four times in the front of his head and once in the back, according to local reports.

Slim was a prominent outspoken critic of Hezbollah within the Lebanese Shia community; he himself was a member of the Shia faith and became famous for critising and documenting Syria and Hezbollah's roles in Lebanon. In the days preceding his death, he received multiple death threats according to reports. The motive and perpetrators are yet to be officially named as Hezbollah has not yet commented on the case.

*SOUNDBITES*

SOT, Rasha Al Ameer, Lokman Slim's sister (Lebanese Arabic): "He was patient; this wasn't the first time they killed him. They killed him (figuratively) many times before. He built a prominent political following that stood between those who want to kill and those who want to build which he was a part of. Some people want to build a country, others want to just destroy it. Politics is always within these parameters, and he was not afraid of death. He used to say 'are you scaring me with death?'. Death is part of these parameters but I personally do not accept it. I am a peaceful person who is not fine with this and do not accept what happened. I only found out a few hours ago. They took from him the most precious thing he had: his life. Is there anything more precious than your life? Unfortunately, they took it from him. They took a very precious person and it, in my opinion, cannot be replaced."

SOT, Rasha Al Ameer, Lokman Slim's sister (Lebanese Arabic): "I don't know (who killed him). You always have a lot of enemies in politics. He also had a lot of moral enemies. If I saw you stealing something, I have to act. There was definitely a moral adversary of Lokman. They were also afraid of his intellect and ability to analyse. But they killed him because he was able to beat them intellectually."
