Nabih Berri, leader of the Shia Muslim militia Amal, said his fighters have ended their siege of Palestinian refugee camps south of Beirut. Berri said he issued orders for “a final cease-fire” after Shia and Palestinian leaders signed a peace accord drawn up by Syrian officials. He added that a committee, made up of representatives from Amal, the Druze Progressive Socialist Party and the Palestinian Salvation Front, has been set up to monitor the truce.
