Lebanese man, daughter shot dead in Iran's capital
A Lebanese man and his daughter were shot and killed in northern Tehran by an unknown assailant Friday night, Iran's Mehr news agency reported.

The two were "Habib Dawoud, 58 years old and his daughter Maryam, 27, who were murdered around 9:00 pm by an unidentified motorcyclist," the agency said Saturday.

They were shot on Tehran's uptown Pasdaran street, it added.

Quoting a source in Tehran's police, Mehr said the two were in a vehicle and were "shot four times from the driver's side".

The source said Dawoud was a history teacher.

The police are yet to issue an official statement.
