Russia calls for a truce

<snip>
Russia is calling for a 72-hour humanitarian truce between Israel and Hezbollah while negotiations continue between the United States and France on a draft resolution to end the fighting.

Vitaly Churkin, Russia's UN ambassador, said the crisis in Lebanon was too urgent to wait for the wording of a draft resolution on the withdrawal of Israeli troops and a permanent ceasefire to be agreed.

He said: "This diplomatic activity is not being conducted in a quiet academic environment.

"War is raging in Lebanon and the humanitarian situation is getting catastrophic."

What a shame our own govt didn't call for a truce instead of fueling this war with its shipments of bombs.

3. Israeli on the defensive there
at the UN. Lot's of effort (probably calculated) to keep Israel from expanding their offensive as they telegraphed.
