(Reuters) - The Lebanese army was assessing on Thursday whether militants who seized a town near the Syrian border had withdrawn overnight as part of an agreement made between Sunni Muslim clerics and the government, a security source said.

He said three policemen, members of the Internal Security Forces, who were captured earlier this week by the gunmen were found in a hospital on the southern edges of Arsal.
