Lebanon's war on terror is not yet over despite the army's crushing defeat of Fatah Islam in a Palestinian refugee camp this week, the defense minister and senior military commanders said Tuesday. They reiterated claims that the militant Islamic group had close links to al-Qaida. Defense Minister Elias Murr told a news conference that 222 Fatah Islam militants were killed in the three-month battle, which ended after the Lebanese army staged a final assault Sunday as the militants attempted a breakout from the Nahr el-Bared camp. The fighters were soon locked in a fierce battle with the troops who took over the camp unopposed within hours.
