Finland's president called on Wednesday for a full investigation by Israel after one of its countrymen and three other United Nations observers were killed in an air strike in southern Lebanon. A Finnish national was among the four UN Observers killed in the air strike. Halonen also said there was no justification for an attack on the UN Post.
Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, said the death of the four observers was tragic. "It is not the first time that they (UN Peace keepers) have been attacked, but it is the first time they have been killed," he told Finnish YLE television. (Reuters)
