BEIRUT: Shiite Sheikh Abbas Zogheib was accidentally shot and wounded in Beirut's southern suburbs late Saturday, the state-run National News Agency said.

The sheikh, a member of the Higher Shiite Council, was accidentally shot in his shoulder and the back of his head during a personal dispute between two clans in Laylaki.

The NNA said Zogheib’s condition was stable.

A man from the Hajoula family was also wounded in the dispute.

Zogheib gained prominence after he was tasked by the religious council to follow up on the case of 11 Lebanese Shiites who were kidnapped in Syria in 2012. The men have all since been released.
