Lebanese troops prevented a group of Hizbullah supporters from holding a demonstration on the Israel-Lebanon border near the Fatma crossing on Wednesday. Forces stopped several buses each carrying some 100 Hizbullah activists that were traveling towards the border. Witnesses reported that the Lebanese troops blocked the route to the border with armored vehicles and, after an hour of negotiations with the Hizbullah supporters, allowed a small group of children to hang a banner with an insulting caricature of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on the border fence.
