2 French troops hurt in Lebanon bulldozer accident

Two French soldiers serving with the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon were seriously injured on Sunday when their bulldozer rolled over, a spokesman for the UN force said. Milos Strugar said French troops were doing engineering and construction work when their bulldozer overturned at the French headquarters in the village of Bourj Qalawi near the southern port city of Tyre. Two soldiers were seriously injured and flown by a UN helicopter to hospital in the southern port city of Sidon for treatment, Strugar said.
