Semaan Khawam, a Syrian-Lebanese artist, rolls one of his artworks in his studio in Beirut
Semaan Khawam, a Syrian-Lebanese artist, rolls one of his artworks in his studio in Beirut September 23, 2014. Khawam, a 40-year-old Syrian-Lebanese artist who has lived in Lebanon since 1988, had just left his friend's apartment in east Beirut on a recent Saturday night when over half a dozen young men in plain clothes surrounded him and demanded to see his papers. The men punched him in the face and tore open his bag. One found ID showing that Khawam, who is both Syrian and Lebanese, had been born in Damascus, and demanded to know who had given him Lebanese citizenship. Then they hit him again. Syrians have long faced discrimination and abuse in Lebanon. But since Arsal, where the Islamist fighters killed around 20 soldiers before withdrawing with hostages, more and more assaults have been reported.
