Incident- 4 killed in attack on UNIFIL patrol in south Lebanon

_42418884_marjayoun_230body_afp.jpgFour Spanish UN peacekeepers were killed and several others wounded in an attack on a UNIFIL patrol in southern Lebanon on Sunday afternoon. It was unclear whether it was a deliberate attack, or whether the partol had run over a mine or unexploded ordinance from last year's war.

Update: further articles on 25 June confirmed that 5 were killed, and strong suspicions that it was a targeted car bomb attack. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place in a region under the effective control of Hezbollah.
