A European Union draft statement being discussed by EU foreign ministers Tuesday calls for "an immediate cease-fire" in the fighting between Israel and Hizbullah. "The (EU) Council calls for an immediate cease-fire," the document said. All EU ministers have to agree on the statement before it is issued, an EU official said. Britain has so far been hesitant to call for an immediate halt to the fighting.
