9 more people have been killed as the Army fights Al Qaeda linked group Fateh Al Islam.
Schools and shops have been shut as fighting spreads outside the Nahr Al Bared refugee camp.
40,000 people are trapped inside the camp, which has been blocked by the Army.
Fateh Al Islam accuses the Army of attacking indiscriminately, and is threatening to start attacks outside the camp – in Tripoli. The group is accused of a bus bombing in February, near Beirut, which killed 3 people.
