Reports that militants with hit lists have returned to the Lebanese border town of Arsal are false, local officials said Monday, after rumors spread that Syrians who clashed with the Lebanese Army earlier this month were attacking locals for collaborating with the military.At least 60 militants and 19 soldiers were killed in the five days of clashes, which erupted on Aug. 2 after militants overran Arsal, a town on Lebanon's eastern border with Syria. The militants pulled out a week later under an agreement brokered by the Committee of Muslim Scholars but took 29 captured security and Army personnel with them.
