Dozens Slain as Lebanese Army Fights Islamic Militants

Hosted by

Lebanese troops and tanks have surrounded a Palestinian refugee camp just south of Tripoli, and continued the artillery shelling that killed 50 people yesterday.  Some 30,000 people live in the Nahr al-Bared camp, but the troops are after a group called Fatah Islam, whose leader says he was inspired by Osama bin Laden.  Our guest Hassan Fattah is in Tripoli for the New York Times.
