Cease Fire in Trouble

Looks like the cease fire in Lebanon is dead before it was born.

Critical Lebanese Cabinet Mtg Postponed Indefinitely

BEIRUT (AP)--A critical Lebanese Cabinet meeting set for Sunday to discuss implementation of the cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah was postponed, a move that was likely to delay the dispatch of the Lebanese army to the south and an end to the fighting.

A top aide to Prime Minister Fuad Saniora said the meeting had been indefinitely postponed but would give no reason. Pushlished reports said the Cabinet, which approved the cease-fire unanimously Saturday night, had been sharply divided over demands in the cease-fire agreement that Hezbollah surrender its weapons in south Lebanon.
