A Lebanese man was killed Wednesday after an argument about a World Cup game turned heated inside a Beirut coffee shop.
Mohammad Zahar was fatally stabbed while celebrating Brazil’s win with a group of friends in the suburb of Hay El Sellom.
Zahar, a Brazil supporter, allegedly got into a heated argument with a Germany supporter inside the coffee shop.
The Germany supporter, identified only by his initials H.K., allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed Zahar.
The two were neighbors, media reports said.
Germany was knocked out of the World Cup after a 2-0 loss to South Korea. Brazil scored twice against Costa Rica.
Lebanese security officials have not released any information about the suspect.
