BEIRUT: Military Prosecutor Saqr Saqr charged Thursday 10 more suspects with involvement in gunbattles in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli.
Saqr accused the men, five of whom are in custody, of forming an armed ring aimed at carrying out attacks and inflicting damage on properties.
The suspects were also charged with possession of weapons as well as murder, attempted murder and undermining the authority of the state.
They were referred to Military Investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghayda.
Scores have been killed and wounded in at least 20 rounds of violence between the rival Tripoli neighborhoods of Sunni-dominated Bab al-Tabbaneh and the largely Alawite Jabal Mohsen since 2008.
