Extremists of various nationalities have managed to infiltrate Ain al-Hilweh camp, according to Western information, bolstering last week's reports that wanted Islamist fugitive Shadi Mawlawi is hiding in the Palestinian settlement. Lebanese security bodies have recently received information from Western sources confirming that dangerous extremist groups and cells have entered Lebanon's largest camp for Palestinian refugees.Among those listed are fugitive Salafist preacher Ahmad al-Assir, Sheikh Khaled Hablas and Mawlawi, all wanted by authorities. It is believed they have joined extremist groups that are preparing to destabilize the situation inside the camp.
