Heavy security measures were in place Sunday around Beirut at the burial of Mohammad Chatah, a prominent Lebanese critic of the Syrian regime, killed in a bombing two days ago.

Chatah, 62, a Sunni Muslim former finance minister and close aide to ex-prime minister Saad Hariri, was killed by a car bomb in the Lebanese capital on Friday along with six other people.
