A cultural landmark before Lebanon's civil war transformed it into a nest of snipers, Beirut's ‘Yellow House' is once again set to play a crucial role in the city.  Built in a neo-Ottoman style in the 1920s, in September it is set to be re-opened as a ‘memory museum' - its bullet-riddled walls and bunkered positions overlooking the city's notorious ‘Green Line' maintained for posterity. John Owens reports from Beirut.
