Army releases Kana inquiry findings

August 4, 2006 11:46

The IDF released on Thursday the findings of an inquiry into the collapse of a building in Kana on Sunday, killing dozens of citizens. The army said that it had believed the building to be vacant of citizens, after it had forewarned the residents to leave the area. Had the army known that civilians were in the building, the attack would not have been carried out. On Wednesday, both the Lebanese Health Ministry and the Human Rights Watch said that they could confirm only 28 of the originally reported 57 civilians who died in the building. Of the 28 that they confirmed, 16 were children.
