TYRE, Lebanon, Aug 6 (Reuters) - An Israeli aircraft fired on a vehicle travelling just ahead of a United Nations humanitarian convoy on Sunday, killing at least one civilian, U.N. and Lebanese security sources said.

The strike drew a swift reaction from the U.N., which has complained along with other aid groups that Israeli bombing and a naval blockade are preventing them from helping many of the 800,000 to 1 million people displaced by the war.

"A truck on the opposite side of the road of the U.N. convoy was heading to Beirut. When it was about 40 metres (yards) away from the convoy, it was hit, apparently by a rocket," said U.N. spokesman for Lebanon Khaled Mansour.

"We are investigating the matter. It's a cause for deep concern that it was so close to a convoy whose details were conveyed to the warring factions."
