Agency aware of for­eign­ers . . . 24

The Washington Times Weekly - - Page Two -

The U.N. agency that over­sees the Nahr el-Bared refugee camp in north­ern Le­banon, the scene of bat­tles be­tween Le­banese troops and Mus­lim mil­i­tants, said on May 23 that it had been aware for months that heav­ily armed for­eign­ers were mov­ing into the Pales­tinian en­clave but were help­less to stop them. The ex­trem­ists of Fatah Is­lam, who lo­cal re­ports say hail from Syria, Saudi Ara­bia, Ye­men and Bangladesh, ap­par­ently en­tered the camp, just north of Tripoli, sev­eral months ago. They are thought to have ar­rived in a group, not in­di­vid­u­ally.
