BEIRUT (AP) A roadside bombing in southern Lebanon on Friday wounded at least five U.N. peacekeepers, Lebanese military and security officials said.

A Lebanese security official said the bomb went off in the Bourj al-Shamali area near the port city of Tyre, damaging a vehicle that was carrying French troops serving with the U.N. peacekeeping force deployed near Lebanon's border with Israel.
