BEIRUT - Two people were killed in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon on Thursday in a clash between hardline Islamists and members of the mainstream Palestinian faction Fatah, security sources said.

The shootout in Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon spiraled from a dispute between individuals affiliated to the two sides, the sources said.

Numerous hardline Islamist groups have a presence in Ain al-Hilweh. These include Jund al-Sham and Fatah al-Islam, the factions involved in Thursday's violence.

Ain al-Hilweh is Lebanon's biggest Palestinian camp.

Lebanon's Palestinian camps for the most part fall outside the jurisdiction of the Lebanese security services.
