Lebanese Army Mops Up Muslim Terrorists at Tripoli Refugee Camp

Authorities in Lebanon say they have identified the body of Chaker al Abssi, the leader of the Palestinian Fatah al-Islam group, that has been holed up inside a Tripoli refugee camp. The group held the camp for 105-days, until Sunday when Lebanese Army troops stormed the facility. Edward Yeranian reports from Beirut.
