Clashes Flare in Palestinian Camp in Lebanon

Lebanese security officials said clashes between rival factions in Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp have killed one person and injured at least 13. 

The clashes in the Ein el-Hilweh camp near the Southern city of Sidon began Monday night after a member of the extremist "Fatah al-Islam" group was shot and wounded in what appeared to be a personal dispute, AP reported. 

The incident sparked a firefight in which a Palestinian from the mainstream Fatah group was killed and five people were injured. 

The officials said heavy clashes with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades resumed Tuesday.

 At least 8 people were injured Tuesday, according to the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak with media.
