Lebanese journalist Mustafa Jeha
Beirut - Agencies

Lebanese journalist Mustafa Jeha Lebanese journalist Mustafa Jeha was pursued and shot at Saturday night while driving on the Damour-Jiyye highway, the National News Agency reported Sunday. Jeha was driving on the highway at 11pm when it became apparent to him that a black Mercedes was pursuing him. Shortly thereafter, its occupants fired shots from a pistol. Jeha\'s vehicle was hit with six bullets.
Security forces arrived at the scene and launched an investigation into the incident.
Jeha\'s father, Mustafa, also a journalist, was killed by unknown gunmen while driving his car in an east Beirut suburb on Jan. 15, 1992.
The Skeyes Center for Media and Cultural Freedom, based in Lebanon, condemned the \"attempted assassination\" of Jeha, saying: \"This is evidence of the perpetrators\' intent to silence him and to prevent any serious investigation into the death of his father who was assassinated over 20 years ago.\"
The centre also quoted Jeha as saying in a telephone interview that he was still under shock especially as the bullets missed him by a few centimetres.
\"We have paid a price in blood for the sake of our cause and one, two or five bullets will not prevent us from continuing on our path,” Jeha said.
