Lebanon to send more troops south after skirmishes

The Lebanese army will send an additional brigade to the south of the country after several skirmishes between UN peacekeepers and villagers inflamed tensions near the border with Israel.


The last two weeks have seen an increase in standoffs in the border area, a bastion of the militant Hezbollah group. Last week, residents attacked French UNIFIL peacekeepers on patrol, seizing their weapons and wounding the patrol leader. (Reuters)
