An Islamic gunman was seriously wounded when he was shot multiple times in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ein el-Hilweh in southern Lebanon, security officials said.
The man, 27-year-old Jalal Hassanein, is close to one of the top camp militants, Shehadeh Jawhar.
Jawhar is believed to have links with al-Qaida in Iraq, according to the security officials who requested anonymity because they were privy to classified information from inside the camp.
