A Lebanese soldier was killed Tuesday in clashes with al-Qaida-inspired militants in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon, a senior military official said. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make statements to media, said the soldier was killed in battles with gunmen of the Fatah Islam group barricaded inside the Nahr el-Bared camp on the outskirts of the northern port city of Tripoli. Reporters outside the camp said a barrage of six shells at a time were heard as the army pounded the camp Tuesday. Black and white plumes of smoke were seen rising from inside the camp.
