Syrian violence spreads to Beirut, Lebanon
SYRIAN CONFLICT. Deadly violence between Sunnis and Alawites has spread from Syria over the border to Lebanon. During the night between Sunday and Monday street fights erupted in Beirut’s al-Tariq al-Jadidah neighborhood, resulting in two deaths and 18 people left with injuries, according to news reports on Monday that were not confirmed.
The Alawites support Syrian’s present al-Assad government, while the Sunnis favor a regime shift. Prior to the latest developments, the groups have clashed together in Libya’s Tripoli, among other places, during the Arab uprising.
