1 dead in spillover clashes from Syria in Beirut
One person was killed and 10 people were wounded in clashes in south Beirut on Sunday between supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad and rival fighters, security sources said.


The fighting broke out before dawn between gunmen loyal to Shaker Barjawi, a Sunni Muslim who supports the Syrian Alawite president, and Sunni Muslims who back the three-year uprising against Assad's rule. Residents heard the sound of loud gunfire and explosions coming from the Al-Gharbi district of southern Beirut, where Barjawi has an office. (Reuters)
