BEIRUT - Lebanese soldiers clashed with Islamist gunmen in the northern city of Tripoli for a second day on Saturday, moving against the militants who holed up in a part of the Old City.

Soldiers exchanged heavy fire with the militants, whose exact affiliation was unclear, and had surrounded them by midday, security sources said.

Three soldiers were wounded in separate fighting on Saturday when gunmen opened fire on an army vehicle near the northern village of Bahneen, the sources said.
