Abu Nidal Backers Clash With Troops

September 05, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Supporters of the late terrorist leader Abu Nidal clashed with Lebanese troops in a Palestinian refugee camp, leaving three men dead and 11 people wounded, security officials and witnesses said.

The clash broke out when troops entered the Jalil refugee camp outside Baalbek in search of a man, a security officer said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The soldiers pulled down the wall of an arms depot belonging to the Fatah Revolutionary Council, the group founded by Abu Nidal, the terrorist leader whose mysterious death in Iraq was announced two weeks ago. Inside they found two truckloads of weapons, the officer said.
