90. Annan's shooting for the end of the week
Annan calls for Security Council to act over Middle East 'nightmare'

by Tim Witcher 15 minutes ago

UNITED NATIONS (AFP) - UN Secretary General
Kofi Annan has called on the UN Security Council to pass a resolution on the "nightmare" Lebanon war by the end of the week as France and the United States wrangled over the wording of a text.

"The secretary general believes that it ought to be possible for the Security Council to adopt a resolution by the end of the week," a UN spokesman said Thursday following a meeting between Annan and the US and French ambassadors.

There has been growing international frustration at the Security Council's failure to make a truce call more than four weeks into the conflict that has left more than 1,000 civilians dead in Lebanon and 38 in Israel.

Annan "reiterates his call that the fighting must stop to save civilians on both sides from the nightmare they have endured in the past four weeks," said the UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric.
