A land mine left over from last summer's war between Israel and Hizbullah wounded a foreign demining expert, the state-run National News Agency said Monday. The agency said Mertzi Zouzi, from Zimbabwe, was working for the UN Mine Action Coordination Center near the south Lebanon town of Jezzine, some 35 kilometers from the border with Israel, when a mine he was attempting to secure went off. It said he suffered serious injuries to a shoulder and to one eye, and was rushed for treatment at a hospital in the port city of Sidon. Separately, security officials in Beirut said Lebanese troops dismantled Monday two unexploded rockets also left over from last summer's war in the town of Bayada near the southern port city of Tyre.
