Lebanese army: Ammunition was on overturned truck that led to deadly clash

The Lebanese army said on Thursday that ammunition was on board a truck that overturned the previous evening and prompted a clash that left two people dead in a mountain village southeast of Beirut.

Powerful Shi'ite armed group Hezbollah on late Wednesday said the truck belonged to it, and that a man charged with securing it had been killed. A resident of the Christian town of Kahaleh was killed as he tried to approach the truck, his son said.
