    Background: KHALDE, BOURJ EL BRAJNEH BEIRUT, LEBANON

    At the Lebanese town of Khalde, United States special envoy Philip Habib took part in the latest round of talks aimed at securing Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon on April 13. Some progress was made according to spokesmen from both sides but the discussions skirted around contentious issues like the future of militia leader Major Saad Haddad. The day before, Lebanon's unsettled atmosphere increased with the appearance of black hands stencilled on the walls of houses in the Bourj el Brajneh refugee camp. Italian army patrols were increased in the area to reassure inhabitants fearful of reprisals against Palestinians. It is not known who is responsible for these signs, but they have created real fear in the population. The same day, Lebanon's capital Beirut suffered another bomb attack, directed this time against a statue of Abdel Gamal Nasser. Nasser is venerated by the socialist Morabitoun militias as the father of Arab Socialism.
