Our Brother, Ourselves

Beirut—The sisters of Elias Wardini, a Lebanese man who was one of the 39 people killed in the New Year’s Eve attack at an Istanbul nightclub, mourn at their home on January 1. The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) said the attack was revenge for Turkish military operations in Syria.

The deputy prime minister said, “He is a specially trained cell member.”
