Troops restore calm in northern Lebanon

Lebanese army moves in to Tripoli to quell sporadic gun battles fuelled by Syrian conflict.

    Calm has been restored in the Lebanese city of Tripoli after 15 people were killed over the last two days.

    Troops moved in early on Sunday morning to stop fighting between rival gunmen believed to have been linked to the violence in neighbouring Syria.

    There is no armed presence in the streets, but the guns and the fighters haven't gone away.
