Report: Five killed in sectarian clashes in Tripoli

Five men have been killed in the Lebanese port city of Tripoli today during sectarian clashes between gunmen loyal to opposing sides in neighbouring Syria's civil war, residents told Reuters.

Ten people have now died in sporadic clashes in the city since Tuesday, the latest bout of violence that has roots in Lebanon's own 15-year civil war but which has intensified as Syria's conflict polarised Lebanese society.
