Monsters and Critics reports:

Shia opposition followers and rival Sunnis who back the western-backed Lebanese government clashed late Friday on the streets of the capital, Lebanese police said.

Machinegun fire was heard across the areas of Ras al-Nabaa and Wataa al-Moustabeh but no further details were available, the police said.

Local media reported that followers of the Shia Amal movement, who are loyal to the opposition headed by Hezbollah, clashed with the Future Current movement led by Saad Hariri.

The Lebanese army immediately cordoned off the two areas and closed major streets inside.
