Israel Kills Four UN Observers in Lebanon

Not deliberately, Israel says. I guess they just kind of got in the way.

CNN reports:

"U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said he was "deeply distressed" by the "apparently deliberate" strike.

"This coordinated artillery and aerial attack on a long-established and clearly marked U.N. post at Khiyam occurred despite personal assurances given to me by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that U.N. positions would be spared Israeli fire," he said in a statement.

"Furthermore, General Alain Pelligrini, the U.N. force commander in south Lebanon, had been in repeated contact with Israeli officers throughout the day on Tuesday, stressing the need to protect that particular U.N. position from attack."

This is the sad reality of war... The innocents die. I guess until the egotistical nature of man undergoes a drastic change, I see no change in this status. As if any country at war is concerned about who is caught in the cross fire... They are just concerned with doing the most damage.
