Two Lebanese soldiers were killed when insurgents hit a military personnel carrier with a rocket-propelled grenade in an attack at the Syrian border on Friday, a security source said.

The attack occurred near the town of Arsal, where Islamist insurgents including militants affiliated to Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) staged a cross-border incursion last month that triggered five days of deadly battles.
