One dead in clash in Lebanon’s Tripoli


BEIRUT: One person was killed and seven others were wounded in a clash in the heart of Tripoli in northern Lebanon on Thursday (Friday in Manila) in the latest in a string of Syria-related incidents. Two of the wounded were soldiers, though the identity of the man killed in the firefight in the markets of central Tripoli had not been confirmed. It was the first battle since 2008 in central Tripoli, although frequent Syria-related violence has raged in other districts.
