Relief agencies said Monday it was too dangerous for them to try to deliver aid to villages in southern Lebanon, where they are concerned about people cut off by Israeli-Hizbullah fighting. "We had planned to reach some villages in the south of Lebanon, but due to the level of hostilities, it's impossible for us to proceed," said Annick Bouvier of the International Committee of the Red Cross. "We are very concerned because the civilian population in the isolated villages is in need of assistance." Relief supplies have moved into Lebanon very slowly since Beirut's main access road to the north was severely damaged by Israeli warplanes on Friday.
