Milany Boutros Alha Bourje holds a picture of herself standing over her dead family after the Sabra and Shatila massacre, in her home at the Shatila Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of Beirut, January 11, 2014. Ariel Sharon, who died on Saturday, was directly responsible for the massacre and unsurprisingly, survivors showed little sympathy when they heard of his death after eight years in a coma. Sitting in her home down the street from where a memorial stands at the site of a mass grave, 70-year-old Milany Boutrous Alha Bourje recalled how her husband and son were shot dead that day. Sharon, she said, deserved far worse than he got. Photo: Caren Firouz / Reuters
