Militants holed up in a Palestinian refugee camp in north Lebanon fired more rockets that landed in farm fields outside the camp on Sunday as the army bombarded suspected hideouts inside the besieged settlement. Security officials said at least five Katyusha rockets landed in farm fields in the northern Akkar region, a few kilometers (miles) north of the Nahr el-Bared camp, where al-Qaida-inspired Fatah Islam gunmen have been fighting the Lebanese army. No casualties were immediately reported, said the officials, speaking on customary condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give press statements.
