BEIRUT, Lebanon—Under the patronage of the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Lebanon, and the Armenian Genocide Centenary Central Committee of Lebanon, and His Holiness Nerces Bedros IXX, Patriarch of the Armenian Catholic Church in Beirut, a diving club owned by Antranig “Toni” Haddad, a descent of an Armenian Genocide survivor, organized the placement of an Armenian Genocide Memorial Cross beneath the sea on Sunday near Green Beach Resort, in the gulf of Junieh north of Beirut.
