Step into any shop in Dahiya, the Hezbollah-controlled suburb of Beirut, and you're bound to find a variety of peculiar souvenirs portraying the face of Hezbollah's Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah.

Love him or hate him, he's popular, and apparently, he's everywhere.

Here are some of the more unique tchockes that I found during my last visit to Lebanon.
