A Lebanese soldier takes cover during clashes with Islamist gunmen in Tripoli's historic centre -- which is on the shortlist for possible nomination as a UNESCO world heritage siteLebanese troops attacked Islamist gunmen holed up in the historic market of the northern city of Tripoli Saturday, after deadly clashes rocked the longtime tourist attraction, an AFP correspondent reported. It was the first time since the civil war in neighbouring Syria erupted in 2011 that violence had spread to the market in Tripoli's historic centre, which is on the shortlist for possible nomination as a UNESCO world heritage site. The AFP correspondent heard shelling and heavy gunfire as the army launched its assault on the gunmen's positions. Tripoli has seen repeated clashes between Sunni militants sympathetic to the rebels in neighbouring Syria and Alawites who back the Damascus regime.
