Tripoli, Lebanon, resident Mira Minkara talks about what it's like to live close to the gunfire and bombings that have raked the city in recent days.

The Lebanese army has been fighting militants who have infiltrated a Palestinian refugee camp in the worst internal violence in Lebanon since the civil war ended in 1990.

Minkara shares her story with Alex Cohen.
