Lebanese government blames Fateh Al Islam for UN killing

Lebanon's Information Minister Ghazi Aridi says Fateh Al Islam are to blame for the murder of 6 UN peacekeepers.

"There is a link between the attack which targeted the Spanish contingent of UNIFIL and the combat between the Lebanese army and the terrorists of Fatah al-Islam in Nahr al-Bared,"

On Sunday, Fateh Al Islam spread their fight outside the Nahr Al Bared camp for the first time - killing a dozen people in Tripoli. Just hours later, they killed 6 UN peacekeepers miles away, in the south of Lebanon.
