Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met Sunday night and discussed the IAF attack that killed at least 60 civilians in southern Lebanon and conditions for a cease-fire, including the proposed deployment of an international force there, an official said. During the meeting, Olmert's military secretary, Gadi Shamni, briefed Rice about the Qana attack and explained that Hizbullah had used the town to fire rockets at Israel, the official said on condition of anonymity because the two-hour Olmert-Rice talks in Jerusalem were private. The official provided no details about the conditions for a cease-fire or the deployment of a peacekeeping force that were discussed. The official and Olmert's office both said the fate of the disputed Shaba Farms territory was not talked about.
