Press photo dated 18 July, 1958 with caption that reads: “A United States marine kept back curious Lebanese as other marines marched into Beirut from their beachhead at Khaldeh beach, south of the city. More marines poured into the country Friday, some at a point north of Beirut and some at Beirut’s airport. The marines took control of nine miles of Lebanese coast stretching north and south of Beirut. Two marines were held by rebels for several hours but were released unharmed.”
