A ceasefire agreed to on Tuesday has temporarily silenced gun battles that have ripped through Lebanon, including one early Tuesday that killed four. Meanwhile, government officials try to prevent the after effects of their spy chief's assassination from drawing the country into neighboring Syria's civil war.
A 9-year-old girl was among those killed in Tripoli on Tuesday, The Daily Mail reports, as Sunni and Shiite Muslims continue to clash in Tripoli, Lebanon's second-largest city. The military had deployed tanks and armored personnel carriers to quell the violence in the coastal city.
Twelve people were injured in Tuesday's incident, according to the Mail, and another five were killed in southern Lebanon.
A total of 65 have been injured and 10 killed in the two days of gunfights, Reuters reports, before the Lebanese army was able to negotiate a ceasefire.

The fighting originated from Beirut, where intelligence chief Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hassan was assassinated last week by a massive car bomb. Protesters continue the violence there, alongside sectarian clashes, according to Reuters.
