A Lebanese soldier mans a checkpoint in the southern Lebanese port city of Sidon on December 19, 2013 as the army continues its search for radical Islamists suspected of standing behind a suicide attack against troops in the area last week. The army said earlier this week that a suicide attacker who assaulted a checkpoint in Sidon, the majority Sunni capital of south Lebanon, was Palestinian. An army officer was killed in the December 15 incident, as were two armed men who accompanied the attacker, who were gunned down by troops manning the checkpoint.
