Lebanese troops killed at least four al-Qaida-affiliated Islamic militants in battles Friday in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon, the state-run National News Agency reported. The NNA's report, which could not be independently confirmed, said the four Fatah Islam fighters died after they attacked an army position inside the Nahr el-Bared camp, located near the northern port city of Tripoli. Also, the military announced Friday that three Lebanese soldiers were killed in the previous day's fighting in the camp, where Fatah Islam militants have been entrenched for over two months. Their deaths raised to 131 the number of troops killed since fighting erupted May 20.
