Clash in Palestinian camp in Lebanon kills 2

Islamists clashed with Fatah gunmen in a Palestinian refugee camp in southern Lebanon on Monday, killing at least two people, Palestinian security officials said.
It was not immediately clear what prompted the shootout in the Ein el-Hilweh camp, where gunfights are common between armed groups jockeying for power.
Monday's confrontation involved gunmen from the Asbat al-Ansar group, which is on a US terrorism list and which Washington has accused of being linked to al-Qaida.
