Two gunmen have been killed in clashes in the Lebanon after the conflict linked to Syria continued to spill over into the country's border for yet another day.

According to a security forces, two more men were also arrested in Lebanon's capital Beirut - one Lebanese and one Syrian man - when the army raided the building where the gunmen were hiding out. They'd apparently attacked the military with hand and rocket propelled grenades.

Supporters of the Syrian opposition movement kept soldiers on the run long into the night as members of the military desperately ran around the streets trying to track down men with weapons. Sunni Muslims living in the northern city of Tripoli have been strong supporters of the backlash against the Syrian President's regime. The arrest of an anti-Assad activist was the catalyst for clashes last week in which nine people died.
