U.N. Chief Visits Lebanon Peacekeepers

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan visits U.N. peacekeepers near the Israeli border in southern Lebanon. Annan has faulted both Hezbollah and Israel for not fully living up to their recent cease-fire agreement.

The U.N. chief is in Lebanon on the first leg of an 11-day Mideast tour that will take him to Israel, as well as to Syria and Iran — Hezbollah's main benefactors.
