Lebanon has asked the United States for $280 million in military assistance to help put down an uprising by al-Qaida-inspired militants operating from a Palestinian refugee camp, the State Department said Tuesday. About $220m. would go to the Lebanese Armed Forces and another $60m. to security forces, spokesman Sean McCormack said. He added that the United States is weighing the request.
