UN ‘grave concern’ over Lebanon border battle with IS

The United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon Sigrid Kaag expressed “grave concern” Sunday over a border battle between Lebanese forces and Syria-based fighters from the Islamic State group that killed eight soldiers, as the chaos of Syria’s war increasingly threatens the security of its Mediterranean neighbor. Kaag issued her statement as Lebanese television broadcast funerals of the soldiers killed during the fighting near the northeastern Lebanese village of Ras Baalbek on Friday, after what appeared to be a cross-border attack from neighboring Syria.
