Frances Guy, British Ambassador to Lebanon, on Wednesday praised the life of Lebanon's Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah who died Sunday, on her government internet blog.

"When you visited him you could be sure of a real debate, a respectful argument and you knew you would leave his presence feeling a better person," Guy wrote in her blog, which is hosted by the British government.

"The world needs more men like him willing to reach out across faiths, acknowledging the reality of the modern world and daring to confront old constraints," explained the British ambassador.

Fadlallah was staunchly anti-American and linked to bombings that killed more than 260 Americans, though he denied the charge.
