Three Lebanese soldiers were killed and two wounded on Sunday in the north-east region of Hermel while pursuing a stolen vehicle, the army said.

They had been giving chase when they were "ambushed and came under fire", it said.

Two of the soldiers were shot dead and the third later succumbed to his wounds.

It said one gunman was also killed and the driver of the vehicle was arrested.

It was a rare attack on the Lebanese army and the circumstances around it remain unclear. The Hermel region is close to the border with Syria.

Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab condemned the ambush, saying an attack on the army is an attack on all Lebanese.

"What is required at this moment is to speed up the arrest of the attackers," Mr Diab told the state-run National News agency.
