Israel 'presses US on bomb sale'
Reports from the US suggest Washington has been asked to speed up a shipment of precision bombs sold as part of a deal with Israel last year.
According to a report in the New York Times, Israel made the request after it began its air assault on Hezbollah targets in Lebanon 12 days ago. The weapons, including five-tone laser-guided bombs, are part of a sale signed last year. Unnamed US officials say the request to speed up delivery is unusual. From the news.
