Supporters commemorate former founder of Hezbollah 2013 -
Flikr: marypmadigan
Pro-Hezbollah supporters commemorate Imad Fayez Mughniyeh; a former senior member of Lebanon's Hezbollah organisation often described as the head of its security section; also known as a senior intelligence official and one of the main founders of the organisation.


He has been frequently associated with the Beirut barracks and US embassy bombings, both of which took place in 1983 and killed over 350, as well as the kidnapping of dozens of foreigners in Lebanon in the 1980s. He was indicted in Argentina for his alleged role in the 1992 Israeli embassy attack in Buenos Aires.


One of his highest-profile attacks took place in the early 1980s shortly after the establishment of Hezbollah. Mughniyah is thought to have killed more United States citizens than any other militant before the 2001 US attacks.


Although information about him is limited, he is reported by the US FBI to have used the alias of 'Hajj' and to have been called 'Abu Dokhan', meaning "smoke-bearer" in Arabic or "father of smoke" due to his ability to vanish from the scene of the crime. 


Mughniyah was placed on the European Union's list of wanted terrorists including that of the FBI Most Wanted with a massive reward bounty of US$5 million.


Imad met his end on February 12, 2008 after a bombing assasination. The explosive, planted on the drivers side, detonated as he walked past leaving enough remains to be able to identify him.
