US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Sunday she is "deeply saddened by the terrible loss of innocent life" after an attack on a village in southern Lebanon but did not call for an immediate cease-fire in the fighting between Israel and Hizbullah.
Rice said she called Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora to say she would postpone a visit to Beirut on Sunday, and that she had work to do in Jerusalem to end the fighting.
"We are also pushing for an urgent end to the current hostilities, but the views of the parties on how to achieve this are different," she said.
