Four Lebanese soldiers have been killed in heavy fighting with al-Qaida-inspired militants holed up in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon, a senior military official said Thursday. The official told The Associated Press that two of the soldiers died Thursday conducting "military operations" inside the Nahr el-Bared camp, while two others were killed the previous night in similar circumstances. The four deaths raised to 128 the number of troops killed since fighting against Fatah Islam militants erupted May 20 in the camp, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. He said the soldiers were killed by a mixture of sniper fire and explosions while dismantling booby traps and mines planted by Fatah Islam fighters in the war-ravaged camp, located on the outskirts of the northern port city of Tripoli.
