Lebanese soldiers ride in their armoured vehicle as they patrol the streets of the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on December 5, 2012, the day after snipers shot dead two men as sectarian clashes linked to the conflict in neighbouring Syria broke out, a security official said.  The men, both civilians, died in separate shootings in two different districts of Tripoli ? one in the Jabal Mohsen district populated by Alawites, the same religious community to which Syrian President Bashar al-Assad belongs, and the other in Bab al-Tebbaneh populated by mainly Sunni Muslims, the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
