Lebanese army soldier injured in clashes between the military and Fatah Islam militants in a Palestinian refugee camp in the country's north has died of his wounds, security officials said Tuesday. The soldier was hit in the head by sniper fire Monday afternoon and later died in hospital, said the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. In Beirut, a man suspected of belonging to Fatah Islam was arrested after police raided the apartment where he was staying in a posh furnished building in Ashrafieh, a Christian neighborhood in the heart of the Lebanese capital.
