Religious ceremonies were held at the Chatilla and Sabra refugee camps on October 30 to remember those Palestinians who died there in the massacre 40 days earlier. In the Chatilla camp alone, several hundred were killed. Despite the worldwide shock and horror caused by the massacre, violence has continued in the Lebanese capital. Two people were killed and 12 injured when a bomb went off in Beirut's main street, the Corniche Mazraa on the same day the memorial ceremonies were held. The explosion caused widespread damage -- cars were wrecked and houses buried in rubble. Meanwhile more American marines have arrived to replace those troops already there, perhaps signalling that the American military presence in Lebanon will be an extended one. The Americans were sent in with French and Italian troops to help the Lebanese government regain control of the country after the invasion by Israel to oust Palestinian fighters.
