Relatives of Islamic fighters holed up in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon began leaving the besieged area Friday, a Muslim clergyman mediating between the militants and the army said. "The evacuation has started," Sheik Mohammed al-Haj of the Palestinian Scholars' Association who was on site at the southern entrance to the Nahr el-Bared camp told the pan-Arab Al-Jazeera television. He said the civilians - mostly women and children, relatives of the Fatah Islam fighters inside the Nahr el-Bared refugee camp - were boarding army buses to be taken for interrogation.
