    Army units have deployed in Lebanon's northern port of Tripoli after sectarian strife in Syria once again spilled over the border.

    Alawite supporters of President Assad and Sunni Muslims have clashed repeatedly in the city in recent months, with existing tensions stoked by the Syrian uprising. Several people have been killed.
