A top UN official said Thursday that he fears an escalation in the fighting between Israel and Hizbullah militias in southern Lebanon, and warned there was a high risk the conflict might broaden. "I do not feel confident that this war between Hizbullah and Israel has peaked yet," Terje Roed-Larsen, who is UN's Secretary-General Kofi Annan's top envoy on Syria-Lebanon issues, told The Associated Press. "There are apparently plans and threats to hit deeper into Israel and that will for sure lead to an escalation of the conflict," he said. "There are still high risks that the conflict might deepen and might also broaden."
