Lebanese and Palestinian security officials said one of Lebanon's most wanted militants was found dead in a Palestinian refugee camp that is a hotbed of Islamic extremists.
The officials said Lebanese citizen Ghandi Sahmarani, better known as Abu Ramez Sahmarani, was found handcuffed, blindfolded and shot execution-style in the back of his head.
His body was discovered on Saturday in the Ein el-Hilweh camp near the southern city of Sidon, according to officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
Sahmarani was a leader of Jund al-Sham, a group that follows al-Qaeda's extremist ideology.
The group has clashed in the past with members of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah group.
