The UN Security Council gave strong backing to the Lebanese government's fight against militants holed up in a Palestinian refugee camp and reiterated its "deep concern" about mounting evidence that arms are being smuggled across the border from Syria. The council adopted a statement after a briefing by Terje Roed-Larsen, the UN envoy for Lebanon-Syria issues, who expressed "alarm" at reports by the Lebanese army and observers that both arms and militia men are crossing the border from Syria to Lebanon. "It seems today that the greatest obstacle to stabilizing the fragile situation in Lebanon is precisely the very presence of these militias and the build-up which we unfortunately are witnessing," he told reporters afterward.
