Gunfire fills Lebanese capital

Sunni gunmen open fire in Lebanon's capital. It's the second day of heavy gunfire in Tripoli following demonstrations in support of the Syrian uprising Friday. The gunmen shoot toward an Alawite district that is home to members of the same religious minority as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) UNNAMED TRIPOLI GUNMEN "We are the Syrian revolution supporters in Lebanon, and we are going to them - dead or alive." Residents are calling on the Lebanese military to end the violence that has killed one person and injured several soldiers. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) UNNAMED TRIPOLI RESIDENT "The ministers and officials are at fault; they told the soldiers to come. We are with the soldiers, but where are they? Do we have to wait for them to attack us and take our children away? You should have seen the tragedy our children saw. " The Lebanese prime minister has ordered the army to intervene as tension between rival sects heightens. Lindsey Parietti, Reuters
