Jun 17 - At least two people were killed in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday when armed residents from rival sectarian factions clashed, a military source said, hours after a demonstration in support of Syrian protesters.

The fighting with grenades and gunfire erupted between residents of the Sunni Muslim Bab al-Tebbaneh neighbourhood and the Jabal Mohsen neighbourhood, whose inhabitants are Alawite, the sect to which Syrian President Bashar al-Assad belongs.

The source said one of those killed was an off-duty soldier caught in the crossfire and the other person was a civilian. Four people were wounded but it was not clear from which side.
