Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud said Thursday that an international force would be the best solution for Lebanon. "We cannot tolerate Israel's playing with the lives of citizens, civilians, women, the elderly and children," he said after meeting with French President Jacques Chirac. Asked about deployment of an international force at the Israel-Lebanese border, he said, "We think this would be the best solution." The crown prince said that Saudi Arabia plans aid to civilians in Lebanon, notably medication.
