Annan to see Lebanon destruction

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan is to see first-hand the destruction wrought in south Lebanon during the four-week conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. Mr Annan landed at the southern port of Naqoura, home to the UN peacekeeping force, after flying in from Beirut.

The force is to be significantly expanded under the UN-backed ceasefire, which ended the fighting. The UN chief will travel on to Israel, as he continues his regional tour to try to bolster the two-week old truce.
