Some 100 Palestinian families returned to a devastated refugee camp in northern Lebanon on Wednesday, the first individuals allowed back months after they fled fighting between the army and Islamic militants. Lebanese troops defeated the al-Qaida-inspired Fatah Islam group on Sept. 2, more than three months after clashes began, but authorities had held off on allowing the more than 30,000 refugees who lived in Nahr el-Bared camp to return as they cleared the area of explosives. The families that returned Wednesday had been living in the nearby Beddawi refugee camp, which became a sanctuary for former residents of Nahr el-Bared after the fighting erupted.
