Clashes between Lebanese troops and Druze militiamen in the Beirut area threatened a government plan to extend army control along a key coastal road leading to Israel's occupation zone in southern Lebanon. The clashes erupted into artillery duels, killing at least one person. A six-man council of military commanders had agreed to begin securing the coastal road today, and militias were to remove their weapons from the area.
