12 Killed, 80 Injured in Lebanon Fighting

The crack of gunfire and the heavy thud of rocket-propelled grenades rang out over Lebanon’s second city of
Tripoli today as the death toll climbed during a third day of running street battles that have ominous echoes of the conflict in neighbouring Syria.

A shaky ceasefire took hold last night but Sunni fighters warned that “just one bullet” from the other side would renew the clashes, which claimed two further lives today, taking the total killed to 12. Around 80 have been injured.
