Growing numbers of Palestinians living in Ein el-Hilweh, the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, are being forced to flee fighting between rival factions. The clashes, which erupted on Saturday pitted members of the mainstream Fatah Movement and a Palestinian armed group calling itself Muslim Youth. Five people have been killed and dozens injured - since a ceasefire between Palestinian armed groups ended on Friday. Lebanon's caretaker Prime Minister has warned the renewed violence in the Ein el-Hilweh camp does not serve the Palestinian cause - and harms the Lebanese state.
