28 dead in Lebanon clashes

“Firefights in northern Lebanon between Sunni Muslims and Alawites — the Shiite offshoot sect to which Syrian President Bashar Al Assad belongs — have killed 28 people, a security source said on Saturday. Rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and machineguns have all been used in six days of clashes in the port city, in the deadliest violence to rock the country for years. Most of the fighting has been between residents of the Sunni Bab Al Tebbaneh district, who support the rebels battling to topple Al Assad, and people in the Jabal Mohsen Alawite area who back him.”
