Lebanon Will File Complaint Against Israel in Deaths of Militants

Lebanon's prime minister says his country will file a complaint against Israel over recent assassinations of Hezbollah and Palestinian militants in Lebanon.

Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said Saturday a government investigation shows Israel was behind the attacks.  He said Lebanon will file the complaint with the U.N. Security Council.  He called the murders Israeli aggression.

Media reports say Lebanon has arrested four suspects in connection with a May 26 car bombing that killed two Palestinians of the Islamic Jihad group. The reports say one of the suspects has also confessed to assassinating two leaders of Lebanon's Hezbollah group.

The reports say Lebanon has concluded the suspects were working for Israeli intelligence.

Some information for this report was provided by Reuters.
