UN attacks Lebanon aid 'disgrace'

The UN's top humanitarian official has criticised Israel and Hezbollah for hindering access to southern Lebanon, calling this a "disgrace".

Jan Egeland said both sides could give aid agencies access in a "heartbeat". "Then we could help 120,000 people in southern Lebanon," he said.

The comments came amid continuing clashes in the area, near Marjayoun.

Israeli planes have dropped leaflets on southern Beirut, warning residents of three districts to leave immediately
