Clashes in Tripoli leave two dead and six injured

Sectarian violence in Tripoli has left two people dead and six injured today in a gun battle between the residents of two neighbourhoods, Bab el-Tebbaneh and Jabal Mohsen. Travellers should be aware that since the conflict in Syria, the two communities have seen regular violence as one area supports Assad's regime and the other supports the opposition. Many countries advise their citizens to avoid travel to the northeastern suburbs of Lebanon.
