BEIRUT (Reuters) - Clashes between gunmen in the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in southern Lebanon killed a child on Tuesday, the latest casualty in several days of violence, the state-run National News Agency reported.

Witnesses said the boy was severely wounded in the head, apparently by a gunshot, before being taken to hospital.

The NNA said at least one other person was wounded by sniper fire on Tuesday.
