A Spanish judge on Tuesday ordered an investigation into the killing of six UN peacekeepers slain in a car bombing in Lebanon this week. Judge Fernando Grande-Marlaska also ordered that none of the bodies should be cremated in case families of the slain decide to ask for second autopsies, a National Court spokeswoman said. The judge issued the order under a Spanish law which entitles the country's courts to prosecute crimes like genocide or terrorism even if they are alleged to have been committed elsewhere. Earlier Tuesday, Hizbullah said it would conduct a similar inquiry into the incident.
