SIDON, Lebanon: A Lebanese Army patrol raided a building in east Sidon’s Abra overnight after being hit by a stone that fell from one of the building's windows.

A security source told The Daily Star that the stone had been thrown by a group of young boys who were playing in the building, and that the soldiers subsequently left them alone. The source added that the incident had no relation to the recent unrest in the city.

Security has been heavy in the southern port city over the past week in response to ongoing protests by Palestinian refugees against a government crackdown on foreign labor, which began last Monday.
