The family home was bombed by Israeli jets in south Lebanon. Tens of thousands of foreign nations have fled Lebanon over the past two weeks to escape the bombing throughout the country. As the conflict rages in south Lebanon hundreds of thousands of Lebanese continue to flee the fighting. Over 400 Lebanese, mostly civilians, have died since the conflict began on Wednesday 12 July.

Ali Sa'id Sheik Hassan, also referred to as Ali Said (died 17 June 2009), was the chief of police of Mogadishu who was killed during the war in Somalia. He had been the Mogadishu chief of the Somali Police Force for roughly two years, prior to being shot by "Islamist forces" in Mogadishu's Hadan district. The BBC reported that the police chief's death would be "a significant setback for the pro-government forces as he had often been on the front line encouraging his colleagues to defend their positions". The New York Times reported Somali analysts stating that "the loss of the police chief, Col. Ali Said, would be a major blow to the transitional government led by Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed." Ali Said had survived an earlier assassination attempt in 2007.
