A police officer died and five men were injured Sunday in a sectarian clash between Christian villagers and their Shiite Muslim neighbors in southern Lebanon, security officials said. The fight erupted when residents in the Christian locality of Tanbourit argued with Shiite youths from the nearby town of Ghaziyeh, blaming them of having harassed some women as they cruised around the village in their car, the officials said. The two groups quickly scuffled and then hurled rocks at each other before shooting broke out, the officials said, speaking on conditions of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. Four Tanbourit villagers were wounded in the brawl, and a fifth was hit in the head by a bullet when gunshots erupted, they said.
