Two cargo ships carrying heavy equipment for French peacekeepers in the UN force monitoring the cease-fire between Israel and Hizbullah have docked at the Beirut port and began unloading early Tuesday, a spokesman for the French contingent said. Lt. Col. Eric Carret told The Associated Press that the Fast Arrow and the Fast Challenger brought heavy equipment, including 13 Leclerc tanks, artillery and other machinery. Unloading the consignments is expected to continue until later this afternoon, he said.
