  • Description

    Street fighting continued for a third day on Friday (2 November) in the Lebanese city of Beirut. Two factions exchanged shots in violent clashes, causing people in the streets, including vehicles of the Arab Deterrent Force, to flee for cover.

    SYNOPSIS: The fighting between a group of leftist forces and supporters of the missing Shi'ite Moslem leader Immam Musa Sadr brought panic to the streets of Chiah, the southern suburb of Beirut.

    Shops were closed and shuttered as the fighting killed at least three people. Several were injured, including this woman who was taken to hospital by car. The weapons used included rocket-propelled grenades, anti-aircraft guns and machineguns. Among those injured were Syrian troops of the Arab Deterrent Force who became involved when they moved in to try to contain the conflict.
