They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

UN 'peacekeepers' injured in Israeli strikes


Two Indian soldiers with the United Nations (UN) peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon have been wounded and their observation post damaged by an Israeli air strike.

Milos Strugar, spokesman for the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), says the two have been evacuated to hospital.

He says the observation post inside their position had been damaged.

Last week, an Israeli air raid killed four UN observers in an attack UN secretary-general Kofi Annan said was "apparently deliberate". Link
