A deal is being worked out under which Israel would end its air and sea blockade of Lebanon in return for the Lebanese government requesting French and other international forces to monitor its coastline, a Lebanese government official said Wednesday. The official said under the deal a simultaneous declaration would announce an end to the siege Israel has imposed on Lebanon since fighting broke out July 12 and Lebanon's request for Western naval forces to monitor shipping. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, said discussions have been under way since Tuesday and will likely continue until Thursday. An announcement is likely to come from UN officials, he added.
