At least five people were killed and dozens wounded in some of the biggest fighting in years, authorities said.The hours-long exchange of fire on a former front line of the 1975-90 civil war involved snipers, pistols, Kalashnikovs and rocket-propelled grenades, and were reminiscent of that conflict.
