Prime Minister Fuad Saniora on Sunday declared victory over terrorism after the army seized the last Islamic militant stronghold in a northern Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon. "It is the greatest national victory for Lebanon over the terrorists in Nahr el-Bared," Saniora said, hours after the Lebanese army took control of the camp in a ferocious battle that left 39 militants of Fatah Islam and three soldiers killed. Another 20 militants were captured and an unknown number has fled, with troops giving chase. "It is a great success that the Lebanese army has achieved over the terrorists, those who sought chaos, destruction and tragedies for Lebanon," he said in a televised speech to the country.
