Renewed fighting has once again put Lebanon in the spotlight.

For two days the Lebanese army and fighters from Fatah al-Islam group, an armed Palestinian faction, clashed around a Palestinian refugee camp in the north of the country.

The upsurge of violence in Lebanon comes as the UN Security Council is debating the establishment of an international court to try those involved in the killing of the late prime minister, Rafiq al-Hariri.
