A Sunni Muslim gunman takes his position as he fires his weapon in the Sunni Muslim Bab al-Tebbaneh neighbourhood in Tripoli, northern Lebanon March 21, 2014. Three people were killed in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday in fighting between supporters and opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, security and medical sources said. Tripoli, like much of Lebanon, is divided along sectarian lines and is only 30 miles (50 km) from the Syrian border. Its majority Sunni Muslims, who back the Syrian rebels, often clash with the minority from Assad’s Alawite sect. REUTERS/Stringer (LEBANON – Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CONFLICT)
