BEIRUT, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Rocket fire on the Lebanese border town of Arsal killed at least seven people and wounded 15 others on Friday, Lebanon's state news agency said.

The National News Agency said one rocket hit Arsal, but local security sources said at least seven rockets hit the area. Arsal sits on the frontier with neighbouring, which is mired in a nearly three-year civil war. (Reporting by Erika Solomon; Editing by Catherine Evans)
