NNA - One man got killed by sniper fire in Baqqar/Tripoli, NNA field reporters said. High tension is reported with sniping engulfing the whole sector, reporters concluded. Earlier, a number of youths protesting Hezbollah's involvement in recent Abra/Sida clashes between the military and local Salafist gunmen removed an Israeli SLA half truck donated in 2000 by Hezbollah to the city of Tripoli as a token from that conflict. Protesters said they were in no need of such Hezbollah toys.
