Roadside bomb kills 4 Spanish UN troops in Lebanon
24 Jun 2007 16:50:49 GMT

KHIYAM, Lebanon, June 24 (Reuters) - Four Spanish United Nations
peacekeepers were killed and three wounded by a roadside bomb that
hit their patrol in south Lebanon on Sunday, security sources said.

Spain's defence ministry confirmed two soldiers had died and at
said least five had been wounded.

It was the first deadly attack on the U.N. peacekeeping force since
it was expanded after last year's war between Israel and Lebanese
Shi'ite Hezbollah guerrillas.

The security sources said two U.N. vehicles were badly damaged in
the explosion, near the southeastern town of Khiyam. They said a
roadside bomb had been detonated by remote control.
