A Brazilian teenager has been killed in Lebanon while fighting for Hizbullah, Brazil's foreign ministry said Saturday. Ibrahim Saleh, 17, died Tuesday after an Israeli airstrike, the ministry said. Saleh's mother was Brazilian, but he never visited Brazil and lived in Lebanon all his life. Authorities said he likely was recruited by Hizbullah at an early age, and that his 23-year-old brother also was in Lebanon fighting against Israel.
