UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Michael Williams, met with Hizbullah on Tuesday in an effort to restore relative calm to the south following a series of events over the past week which escalated tensions in the area. Williams also said that he planned to travel to Israel to discuss the situation along the border. Tensions peaked over the weekend when Lebanese villagers in the south of the country attacked a group of UNIFIL troops who were trying to investigate the cause of a massive explosion earlier in the week. Over ten peacekeepers were hurt in the clashes.
