Second day of sectarian violence in Tripoli (update)

Another person was killed and 11 wounded in the second day of sectarian violence in Tripoli. Fighting continues between gunmen loyal to opposing sides in neighbouring Syria's civil war. The Lebanese army has cut off all roads leading to the disputed area and sent in troops to stop militants using machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades in one of the main thoroughfares. Travellers should consider postponing travel to this city at this time due to the heightened threats to personal security.
