Security officials said a gunfight between two rival Christian groups has left two people dead and three injured in northern Lebanon. According to the AP, they said the clash between the anti-Syrian Lebanese Forces and pro-Syrian Marada group took place early Wednesday in the village of Bsarma in the northern district of Koura.
The clashes were triggered by a disagreement over hanging rival posters. The three wounded were a policeman and two members of the Lebanese Forces. Press reports said security forces raided the house of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party member Ghassan Ghazi -- suspected of causing the Bsarma clashes – and arrested him.
