Five people were killed early Sunday when Israeli aircraft bombed a house in the southern Lebanese village of Ansar, Lebanese security officials and Arab media said. The security officials, who declined to be identified because they are not authorized to talk to the media, said the five were a man named Ibrahim Asie and members of his family. It was not immediately clear whether Asie had relations with to Hizbullah. The victims were killed at daybreak, as rescuers were sifting through rubble after previous Israeli airstrikes overnight. Several people have been wounded in the village, which lies about 25 kilometers (15.53 miles) north of the border, near the market town of Nabatieh. Warplanes later returned to bomb a road leading to the village.
