    The Beirut area has seen three big explosions in the last week, killing a woman and injuring nearly 30 people.

    The violence came as Lebanese troops were fighting Islamic fighters at the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr el-Bared in northern Lebanon.

    Scores of people have been killed in the week-old fighting.
