One person, not 40, dead in Israel strike: Lebanon

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora
said on Monday that one person had been killed in an Israeli
air strike on the southern border village of Houla, rather than
40 as earlier feared.

A resident said about 50 people had been found alive under
the rubble.

"The massacre in Houla, it turned out that there was one
person killed," Siniora told reporters. "They thought that the
whole building smashed on the heads of about 40 people ...
thank God they have been saved."
