Imam Musa Sadr was the founder of Lebanon’s Amal movement.

Sadr and his two companions Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin were kidnapped in August 1978 during an official visit to the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

Sadr was scheduled to meet with officials from the government of the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

The three were never seen or heard from again and their fate is still unknown even after the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime in 2011.

Sadr came from a long line of clerics tracing their ancestry back to Jabal Amel, Lebanon.

He is still regarded as an important political and spiritual leader by the Shia Lebanese community. His status only grew after his disappearance in August 1978, and today his legacy is revered by both Amal and Hezbollah followers.

The Amal Party remains an important Shia organization in Lebanon.
