WASHINGTON, May 22 (AP) Lebanon has asked the United States for $280 million in military assistance to help put down an uprising by Al Qaeda-inspired militants operating from a Palestinian refugee camp, the State Department said Tuesday.
About $220 million would go to the Lebanese Armed Forces and another $60 million to security forces, said Sean McCormack, a State Department spokesman. He added that the United States was weighing the request.
