Soldiers are on the streets of the Lebanese city of Tripoli, after six days of fierce clashes as the violence in Syria spills into the neighbouring country.

Unrest has been sparked by the deaths in Syria of 14 Lebanese and Palestinian gunmen who had joined the fight against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
