Fighting has been reported through the night in the Lebanese city of Tripoli between Hezbollah sympathizers and supporters of the government.
Machine-guns and rocket-propelled grenades are being used and people have been fleeing their homes, correspondents say. Three people died in the northern city on Saturday. Meanwhile, an uneasy calm has descended on the capital, Beirut, scene of four days of bloody street battles.
More than 30 people died in those clashes between Hezbollah fighters and government supporters. On Saturday, Hezbollah agreed to pull its fighters off the streets of the Muslim western part of the city after the army overturned government measures aimed at curbing the group.
It suddenly seems that somebody has turned on the world button for conflict!
