Two killed, 7 wounded in north Lebanon family dispute
A+ A-

TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Two people were killed and seven people wounded Saturday when a family dispute in the northern city of Tripoli led to an exchange of gunfire; the Lebanese Army is searching for the shooters.

Members of the Aswad and Khalaf families exchanged fire in the neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh using light weaponry. Hossam and Yehya Khalaf were killed and seven people were wounded. During the shooting, a hand grenade was thrown at a store, which subsequently burned down.

The Army arrived at the scene two hours into the clash and promptly restored calm and order.

In a statement released Saturday night, the Army said it had begun pursuing perpetrators and had arrested a number of suspects.
