Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met relatives of two Israeli soldiers seized by Hizbullah militants in northern Israel at the start of last year's Lebanon war on Tuesday and promised that he will keep working hard to seek their release. Ban told the wife and parents of Ehud Goldwasser and the brother of Eldad Regev that he has been working with a secret "facilitator" chosen by his predecessor, Kofi Annan, to help win the release of the soldiers and was not giving up, UN deputy spokeswoman Marie Okabe said. "The UN strongly hopes for their release," she said. Goldwasser's wife and Regev's brother met reporters afterwards and appealed to Hizbullah to provide information about their condition after almost eight months without a single word. "For us, the family, this is the worst time in our lives," Karnit Goldwasser said. "We know that they got injured, but we don't know if a doctor got to see them."
