Wife of Canadian UN peacekeeper demands answers

The wife of a Canadian peacekeeper killed in Lebanon demanded Thursday to know why IAF missiles struck the UN site where her husband was stationed as a military observer, despite repeated pleas by observers there to halt the firing. Cynthia Hess-von Kruedener told reporters in Kingston, Ontario, that she believes the attack, which involved precision guided missiles, was intentional. Her husband, Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener, was still missing Thursday and was presumed dead. Hess-von Kruedener said her husband told her that the UN site had been fired upon for weeks, despite the fact that their vehicles and buildings were clearly marked.
