Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora expressed his condolences to Spain over the killing of six UN peacekeepers in a bombing this week and thanked the government for deciding to keep its troops in the Middle East country. "I came to Madrid today to convey the condolences in the name of the Lebanese government and the Lebanese people to the Spanish people and the Spanish government," Saniora said at a joint news conference with Spanish counterpart Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero. The six Spanish army peacekeepers were patrolling the main road between the towns of Marjayoun and Khiam, a few kilometers (miles) north of the Israeli town of Metulla, when a bomb struck their armored personnel carrier Sunday. Two other soldiers were seriously wounded. "I really bow to the memory of these six brave men" said Saniora, whose one-day visit to Spain came as a surprise.
