Daily Star (Lebanon)
May 24, 2002
On her first official visit to Lebanon since the liberation of
the South, the daughter of Irans late Ayatollah Khomeini went
to the South on Thursday to pay a visit to the notorious Khiam detention
Zahraa Mustafawi was accompanied by a delegation of prominent personalities
including the Irans ambassador to Lebanon, Mohammad Ali Sobhani.
Mustafawi was shown a documentary about the prison, which included
the methods of torture used by Israeli guards against detainees,
as well as the day the prisoners were liberated, May 25, 2000.
Mustafawi questioned whether the word terrorist was
being applied to the right individuals or countries and urged the
free world to defend the intifada and to boycott American
and Israeli goods.
Mustafawi then toured the prison cells, before heading toward Fatima
Gate, where the delegation observed a large number of Israeli soldiers
and several armored vehicles on the other side of the border.
