Lebanese official says UN observers wounded by landmine

A Lebanese a judicial official says an ongoing investigation by the Lebanese army has found that a landmine wounded three UN military observers and a translator in the south last week.

“Preliminary results of a Lebanese army investigation have found that the observers were wounded by a landmine,” the official tells AFP, adding that the probe is continuing and the source of the mine had yet to be determined.
