Lebanese army says soldiers and gunmen killed in clashes

Fighting broke out between Lebanese troops and gunmen on Friday, in an area that has seen regular incursions from Islamist militants fighting in Syria's war, the Lebanese army said in a statement.
The statement said a large number of "terrorists" had been killed as well as a number of soldiers but did not give figures. Soldiers repelled an attack on an army post close to the village of Ras Baalbek, near the Syrian frontier.
