The mother of Cristelle Abou Chakra carries a picture of her daughter during her funeral in Beirut
The mother of Cristelle Abou Chakra carries a picture of her daughter during her funeral in Beirut February 17, 2014. The deaths of Manal Assi, bludgeoned with a pressure cooker, and Cristelle Abou Chakra, who was reportedly poisoned with chemicals, amplified public outrage in Lebanon, with many Lebanese taking to social media to condemn a seven-month delay in passing a domestic violence law. KAFA (Enough), a group supporting abused women, first proposed legislation in 2007 to establish penalties for domestic violence and provide protection orders. The bill polarised politicians and was amended by parliament after lobbying from Lebanon's powerful religious establishment. Picture taken February 17, 2014.
