Lebanese army troops intervened to restore order as pro-government and opposition supporters engaged in fist fights and beat each other with sticks in a Muslim neighborhood of Beirut late Saturday, police and TV stations reported. Gunfire was heard in the melee but it was not clear who fired and there was no immediate word on casualties. State-run National News Agency reported trouble in four neighborhoods but gave no details. Such clashes have become common in recent weeks as tensions escalate between rival Lebanese camps and the country's 15-month-old political crisis deepens.
