Several wounded in N. Lebanon clash

TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Four people were wounded when a quarrel late Sunday developed into an armed clash between supporters of rival families in Minyeh, north Lebanon.

The fight began after an attack on Abdel Wahed al-Kheir’s family, which supports Future MP Kazem al-Kheir, security sources said.

An armed clash soon ensued between members of Abdel Wahed's family and others supporting Kamal al-Kheir, a losing March 8 candidate who ran in the 2009 parliamentary elections.

Three of the four wounded were identified as Omar Khodr al-Kheir, Ali Khodr al-Kheir and Hussein Mohammad al-Kheir.

They were taken to the local Kheir Hospital.

The Lebanese Army intervened and launched a search for the attackers, said the sources, who spoke to The Daily Star on condition of anonymity.
