Renewed clashes in Tripoli kill 9, wound 60

Lebanese security forces man a checkpoint in the northern port city of Tripoli on January 23, 2014 as the army deployed following clashes between supporters and opponents of Syria's regime. While residents of Bab al-Tebbaneh support the revolt in neighbouring Syria against Bashar al-Assad, the Alawites of Jabal Mohsen -- who come from the same offshoot of Shiite Islam as Syria's president -- back the regime.
