Three Chinese peacekeepers were lightly injured by a Hizbullah rocket that landed near their post in southern Lebanon, the official Xinhua News Agency said Sunday. The brief report, which cited an unnamed Chinese officer, did not specify where the attack occurred or whether the peacekeepers had been hospitalized. A Chinese observer was among four UN peacekeepers killed last month in southern Lebanon by an Israeli attack on an observer post.
