Hizbullah condemns UN envoy's comments

Hizbullah condemned on Saturday recent comments by a senior UN envoy in which he criticized the group for providing support to Palestinians in Gaza from Egypt. Saturday's statement by Hizbullah accused Terje Roed-Larsen of supporting Israel and said his position provided cover for Israeli "criminal practices." Roed-Larsen is the UN chief's envoy dealing with implementation of a 2004 Security Council resolution that includes demands for Hizbullah's disarmament. Larsen on Thursday criticized Hizbullah's admission that it supported Palestinians in Gaza from Egypt and said there is growing concern Hizbullah has engaged in activities beyond Lebanese territory.
