Britain and Germany rejected a draft EU statement Tuesday calling for an immediate cease-fire in the fighting between Israel and Hizbullah, diplomats said. Britain "can't accept" the draft under any circumstances, a senior British official said. The two nations, at emergency EU foreign ministers' talks, offered an alternative draft calling for an eventual "cessation of hostilities" - with no time frame given.
