Israel admits its ship has been hit

After originally saying there were nothing more than a few scratches on the Israeli war ship atttacking Lebanon from just outside Beirut, Israel has admitted that it has been seriously damaged.

They say it is limping back into an Israeli port.

Reports suggest it was the country's most sophisticated vessel.

It's not clear how many Israeli sailors have been killed.
