SIDON, Lebanon - At least five people were killed in fighting on Monday between Palestinian factions in a refugee camp near Lebanon's southern city of Sidon, local sources said.

They said the fighting broke out between fighters from a group originally linked to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah group and a rival militant organization.

It was not immediately clear what triggered the clashes in the Mieh Mieh camp, in which at least 10 people were wounded.
