Hezbollah have prevented a group of grieving Lebanese students from playing songs to honor their late friend’s birthday, who was killed in a car crash, local media have reported.

Mohammad Hamadeh - who died earlier this year - would have been celebrating his birthday at the end of last month. And his friends explained that they had wanted to mark the occasion by playing their late friend’s favorite music - songs by the popular Lebanese singer Fairuz.

But they were confronted by a group of students known to be affiliated with Hezbollah, who demanded “no music be played”. The grief-stricken students pleaded that they wouldn’t play the music loudly and just for a short period of time.

Then on the morning of Mohammad’s birthday, they were confronted by a group of 30 people affiliated with the militant group standing outside in a move to intimidate the grieving friends
