Israel nixes major U.N. role in Lebanon

Israel's U.N. ambassador, Dan Gillerman, on Thursday announced Israel will not allow major U.N. involvement in Lebanon and will not allow the U.N. to join in an investigation of an Israeli airstrike that demolished a post belonging to the current U.N. peacekeeping mission in Lebanon where four U.N. observers were killed.

Gillerman said, "Israel has never agreed to a joint investigation, and I don't think that if anything happened in this country, or in Britain or in Italy or in France, the government of that country would agree to a joint investigation."
