These women hang out in front of the UN building in Beirut, protesting the fact that their sons were kidnapped during the civil war; those still living languish somewhere in the depths of a Syrian prison. Every day they maintain their vigil in the hope of some kind of closure. Syria withdrew from Lebanon five years ago but there has still been no official word on their missing sons, just scraps of hope from fellow inmates who have been released.
Anyone good at French can read more about in Sebastien Malo's article for Montreal broadsheet La Presse.
