      Lebanon: Six Killed as Military Clashes with Radicals


      Six Lebanese soldiers were killed on Sunday in a clash with supporters of a radical Sunni Muslim sheikh opposed to the Hizbullah terror group, an army statement quoted by the AFP news agency said.

      “An armed group loyal to Sheikh Ahmad al-Assir attacked, for no reason, a Lebanese army checkpoint in the village of Abra” on the outskirts of the southern Lebanese city of Sidon, the military said, according to AFP.
