Lebanese gunmen clash over Syria crisis
Lebanese gunmen clash in northern city over situation in neighboring Syria
By The Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) ' Lebanese security officials say clashes between pro- and anti-Syria gunmen in a northern Lebanese city have left one person dead and 12 wounded.

The officials say the two sides fired on each other from two rival neighborhoods in Tripoli, one dominated by Sunnis, the other by Alawites, a Shiite offshoot sect. They say clashes started Friday night and continued sporadically until Saturday.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.



Lebanese factions have been deeply divided over the Syria crisis, and tensions have intensified with the regime's siege of the central Syrian city of Homs this week.

Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime is dominated by Alawites, while the uprising against him has been led by Sunnis.
