Artillary shells exploded in and around the southern Lebanese port of Sidon in the 28th day of fighting that has pitted Christian militiamen against Muslim and Palestinian fighters. Hospital officials reported at least five people killed and 30 wounded, most of them civilians. The Lebanese army sent armored personnel carriers and troops to the city to reinforce its garrison in a new attempt to end the fighting, which has claimed more than 80 lives in 18 days.
