Lebanese troops captured the spokesman for Fatah Islam and three others early Saturday, about two weeks after the army crushed the militant group in a northern Palestinian refugee camp, a military spokesman said. Since defeating the movement after a three-month long siege, Lebanese troops have been combing the areas surrounding the Nahr el-Bared refugee camp searching for any who may have escaped during the final desperate breakout attempt on Sept 2 in which more than 50 were killed and two dozen detained. Abu Salim Taha was captured in Jabal Terbol, outside the Nahr el-Bared and near the other Palestinian camp of Beddawi. A military spokesman, who requested anonymity until an official statement was issued, said the militant was a Palestinian-Syrian from the refugee camp of Yarmouk and three others were captured with him.
