BEIRUT, May 22 (Reuters) - Aid workers delivering supplies to a Palestinian camp in Lebanon were forced to leave on Tuesday when shells exploded near their convoy, a Reuters witness said. Witnesses said at least two people were wounded when the shells hit the Nahr al-Bared camp, where the Lebanese army has been fighting militants since Sunday. A U.N. convoy was also forced to leave by the blasts and gunfire.

The aid convoys had entered the camp after a lull in violence.
