Rival Shiite gunmen fought with long-range artillery, rockets and automatic weapons in southern Lebanon Monday, even as factional fighting subsided in the outskirts of Beirut, police said.

Police said 16 people, including two gunmen from the pro-Syrian Shiite Amal militia, one from the pro-Iranian Hezbollah and a Syrian soldier, were killed in clashes that erupted Saturday in the Syrian-controlled southern suburbs of Beirut. A 1-month-old baby and his mother also were among the dead.Another 30 people, including five Syrian soldiers, were wounded in the fighting around Beirut, and initial reports said two people were wounded in southern Lebanon, where the inter-Shiite feud spread Monday.
