AMMAN - Three Lebanese soldiers were killed and one was critically wounded on Saturday when their armored vehicle hit a landmine in an area along the Lebanese-Syrian border, a security source said.

The area where the soldiers were killed was near a border stronghold close to where Shi'ite Hezbollah militia recently forced Sunni Syrian militants to leave in a joint cross-border operation with the Syrian army, the source added.
