Lebanese Troops Clash With Hezbollah
SIDON, Lebanon -- Lebanese troops fired at militant Hezbollah forces in southern Lebanon Sunday in the first such clash in more than a decade, killing one guerrilla and wounding two, a Hezbollah official said.

Lebanese security officials confirmed the clash in the southern village of Jbaa, some 20 kilometers (8 miles) southeast of the port city of Sidon, but refused to give further details.

The incident began when members of rival Shiite Muslim groups Hezbollah and Amal clashed over hanging political posters in the village mosque, the Hezbollah official said on condition of anonymity.
