FAYDA, Liban, 17 avril (HCR) – « Mademoiselle Hanane » est debout dans la boue devant ses élèves, qui sont ses cousins. Elle se retourne et écrit avec un morceau de calcaire sur la porte d'un abri de fortune près de son propre abri. La porte est son tableau, c'est sa classe et elle y enseigne l'anglais. Elle écrit les lettres de l'alphabet en anglais, puis elle les prononce à haute voix. La classe répète chaque lettre à l'unisson.
