Fighting between rival sects in Lebanon’s second city killed two people including a 10-year-old girl on Thursday, security and medical sources said, in violence stoked by the war in neighboring Syria.

Clashes between Sunni Muslims and members of the Shi’ite-derived Alawite sect in the northern city of Tripoli broke out after gunmen shot a Sunni man who had Alawite family members and lived in a mostly Alawite area of the city, the sources said.

The man later died of his wounds and at least 14 people were wounded in the ensuing clashes, including two soldiers and one gendarme after Lebanon’s security services sent reinforcements in to restore order.
