Algeria called the Israeli raid Sunday on the southern Lebanese town of Qana a "criminal act," Tunisia named it a "horrible massacre" and Morocco's king urged greater UN action to end the conflict. The three Muslim nations in North Africa have sided with Lebanon in the conflict. Sunday morning's attack was the deadliest yet in 19 days of fighting, killing at least 56, mostly sleeping civilians. Israel said Hizbullah guerrillas were using the town to target Israeli villages. Algeria's Foreign Ministry issued a statement Sunday calling the attack on Qana "a criminal act that nothing could justify." It called for an "awakening of conscience and a collective burst of effort by the international community toward an immediate and unconditional cease-fire."
