Lebanon's defense minister declared Thursday that the Fatah Islam militant group has been crushed and its leaders on the run, but said combat in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon will continue until the remnants of the group are flushed out. "I can notify the Lebanese that the military operation is over," Defense Minister Elias Murr said in a television interview late Thursday. "The Lebanese army has crushed those terrorists."
