UN: IDF laid mines in Lebanon during summer war

A UN agency said Saturday that Israel laid mines in Lebanon during this summer's war between the Jewish state and the Lebanon-based Hizbullah group. The report by the United Nations agency follows its investigation of a land mine explosion Friday that wounded two European disposal experts and a Lebanese medic. The detonating object was an Israeli anti-personnel land mine placed in a mine field newly laid during the fighting in July and August, the UN Mine Action Coordination Center in south Lebanon said in a statement. The center's statement was the first accusation that Israel had planted new mines during the latest war.
