Sectarian fighting in the northern city of Tripoli killed one person and wounded 10, Lebanese police officials said Friday. The state-run National News Agency said the clashes between Sunni Muslim gunmen and Alawites broke out at dawn Friday after a hand grenade was thrown toward a Sunni area. The two police officials say the fighting escalated later as automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades were used between the Sunni Bab el-Tabaneh district and the predominantly Alawite Jabal Mohsen neighborhood. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak to the media.
