Residents of a Beirut suburb fired heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades at each other on Sunday, after Lebanese army soldiers shot dead two members of a political party in an alliance against President Assad.

"Nine people were wounded in the Tariq al-Jadede district [in southern Beirut]," a security source told Reuters.
