The Islamic terror group beseiged by Lebanese troops in a northern refugee camp said Tuesday it would cease firing in the latest attempt to bring a truce in three days of heavy fighting. At least two such attempts at a cease-fire have quickly fallen apart in the battle between the Lebanese military and the Fatah Islam terror group, whose fighters are holed up in the Nahr el-Bared refugee camp outside the northern port city of Tripoli. Fatah Islam will observe a cease-fire beginning at 2:30 p.m. (11:30 GMT) and expected it to hold "if the Lebanese army abides by it," spokesman Abu Salim Taha told The Associated Press from inside the camp.
