Lebanese army troops prevented a group of Hizbullah supporters from reaching the border with Israel on Wednesday to stage a protest, witnesses said. Soldiers recently deployed in the border town of Kfar Kila stopped buses carrying about 100 Hizbullah supporters, mostly young boys, who were traveling to the nearby Fatima Gate border fence to stage a demonstration. The troops told the demonstrators they could not go further and blocked the road with two armored personnel carriers. After an hour of negotiations, the troops allowed a small group of up to 12 boys to hang up a large caricature poster mocking US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on the border fence, the witnesses said. It was the first time the army was known to have intervened to stop a demonstration along the volatile border.
