UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan visited UN peacekeepers in south Lebanon on Tuesday, a day after Italy and Turkey moved to join the international force there. Annan and his entourage left Beirut Tuesday morning in two white United Nations helicopters, and landed in Naqoura, a town on the Mediterranean coast about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) north of the Israeli border, and home to headquarters of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL. The UN chief was in Lebanon on the first leg of an 11-day Mideast tour that would take him to Israel, as well as to Syria and Iran - Hizbullah's main benefactors. The UN chief would visit other UNIFIL posts throughout the south by helicopter later Tuesday, possibly landing at Khiam, Ivanko said.
