Two people were killed Saturday when gunmen stormed a police post in eastern Lebanon after clashing with army troops over the arrest of an alleged Syrian jihadist, security sources said.

The two men, residents of the border town of Arsal, were killed trying to prevent the gunmen from storming the nearby police post, the sources and Lebanon's official National News Agency said.
