A Lebanese soldier takes cover during clashes with Islamist gunmen in Tripoli's historic centre -- which is on the shortlist for possible nomination as a UNESCO world heritage siteLebanese troops attacked Islamist gunmen holed up in the historic market of the northern city of Tripoli Saturday, after deadly clashes rocked the longtime tourist attraction, an AFP correspondent reported.

The fighting came nearly three months after a battle in eastern Lebanon between the army and jihadists from Syria's Al-Qaeda branch and the Islamic State (IS) group. It broke out after gunmen attacked an army patrol Friday in the Khan al-Askar area, near the heart of the coastal city, wounding four soldiers.

A member of a district electoral commission holds a poster with portraits of candidates for Ukraine's parliamentary elections at a polling station in Kiev, on October 25, 2014Ukrainian leaders made final appeals to voters ahead of snap parliamentary elections Sunday that are intended to give impetus to democratic reforms, but are overshadowed by deepening conflict with Russia and pro-Russian rebels. "At last we will elect a pro-Ukrainian and not pro-Moscow, an anti-corruption and not pro-bribery, a pro-European parliament," President Petro Poroshenko said late Friday. His Petro Poroshenko Bloc was forecast to emerge as the biggest party in the 450 seat legislature, although without an absolute majority, meaning he will have to form a coalition, probably with harder-line nationalists. The elections were called to cement the pro-Western course launched in a February street revolt that overthrew the corruption-tainted, Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovych.
