Lebanese troops resumed bombardment of al-Qaida-inspired militants entrenched in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon on Friday as the army said it lost six soldiers in fierce fighting the day before. Troops pounded the remaining suspected hideouts of Fatah Islam fighters in Nahr el-Bared with artillery and tank fire in a bombardment that sent plumes of black smoke rising in the air over the refugee camp's bullet-punctured buildings. Holed up deep inside the camp, Fatah Islam gunmen responded with heavy fire Friday, soldiers said.
