    Background: BEIRUT & SHTOURA, LEBANON

    The month of January ended with three days of renewed violence in Lebanon, bringing with it fears of a return to open warfare between the country's many rival factions.

    In the early hours of January 31, a car bomb exploded in the Beirut suburb of Layalaki, causing widespread damage. The previous day, an Israeli soldier was killed when a patrol was ambushed in the eastern outskirts of the capital. This was the latest in a series of attacks on Israeli troops but not the most serious incident of recent weeks.

    In the eastern town of Shtoura, a massive car bomb demolished a three-storey building on January 29, reportedly the headquarters of a Palestinian guerilla group.

    Up to 30 people were killed in the blast, although guerilla officers at the scene said it was impossible to be certain of the exact number of casualties, as victims had been taken to several hospitals.
