Syrian Islamist gunmen seize Lebanese border town police station

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian Islamist rebels took control of a police station in the Lebanese border town of Arsal on Saturday after Lebanese security forces arrested one of their leaders, security sources and a rebel fighter said.

Lebanon’s National News Agency reported that two civilians were killed trying to prevent the fighters from storming the building.
