The UN's special coordinator for Lebanon said Wednesday that calm and stability have returned to southern Lebanon following several violent incidents targeting UN peacekeepers that heightened tensions along the border with Israel.

Michael Williams welcomed the Lebanese government's decision last week to deploy more soldiers in the area along the Israeli border and he urged both Israel and Lebanon to meet all requirements in the UN resolution that ended the Israeli-Hizbullah war in the summer of 2006.

On June 29 and July 3-4, angry villagers blocked roads and threw stones to prevent peacekeepers from performing a military drill.
