TRIPOLI - One person was killed and several soldiers wounded in street battles in Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli on Saturday, a security source said, in a second day of violence involving supporters and opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
The coastal city is dominated by Sunni Muslims who support the 11-month uprising against Assad in neighboring Syria, but is also home to members of Assad's Alawite minority.
Residents said rocket-propelled grenades were fired from the Sunni Muslim district of Bab al-Tabbaneh towards the Alawite district of Jebel Mohsen, but caused no injuries.
