Four Lebanese soldiers were killed as Lebanese troops on Wednesday battled militants inside a northern Palestinian refugee camp, a senior military official said. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media, said the army was making advances in the refugee camp that has been the scene of heavy clashes with the Fatah Islam militants for the past two months. "The army is expanding its area of control and is closing in on remaining militants fighting in certain pockets of the Nahr el-Bared camp," he told The Associated Press. The four soldiers were killed overnight, he said, raising to 107 the army's fatalities since fighting broke out nearly two months ago in the Palestinian camp near the northern port city of Tripoli.
