Shia Muslim militiamen and Palestinian guerrillas battled into a second day for control of strategic highlands in southern Lebanon, and the toll rose to 10 killed and 28 wounded, police said. The new confrontation threatened to rekindle an intermittent war between Justice Minister Nabih Berri's Amal militia and Yasser Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization for control of the camps.

Refugees scurried to bomb shelters, but the jets made no bombing runs.
