Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni used a press conference in Haifa to respond to remarks by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who accused IDF soldiers of deliberately targeting UN observers in Lebanon.
"There is no commander in the army who would deliberately direct fire at civilians or UN soldiers," she said. "We expressed our sorrow over the regret. I spoke with the foreign ministers of Austria and Canada whose soldiers were killed yesterday and I apologized for the incident," Livni said. (Ronny Sofer)
