At least eight people are killed when fighting breaks out between Palestinian factions in a refugee camp in Lebanon. At least 10 people were wounded. Local sources said the clashes broke out between fighters from the Brigades of Return, a group originally linked to Palestinian President Mohammad Abbas's Fatah group, and a rival militant organisation. It's not immediately clear what triggered the fight. Tensions in the camps and in Lebanon as a whole have been been exacerbated by the conflict in neighboring Syria. More than a million Syrian refugees have poured into Lebanon , displaced by three years of war.
