UN envoy: No access for UN peacekeepers to Lebanon tunnels

The United Nations' Mideast envoy says peacekeepers in Lebanon have not been given access to tunnels stretching into Israel, which the UN says violate a case-fire resolution that ended a devastating war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006.


Nikolay Mladenov told the Security Council on Tuesday that the UN peacekeeping mission has confirmed that two tunnels crossed the UN-drawn Blue Line between Lebanon and Israel, but "has not been granted access to the confirmed entry points of a tunnel near Kfar Kila on the Lebanese side."
