And now the UN demands Israel take action on Shebba

Kofi Annan, the UN's Secretary General has demanded that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon take action on the Occupied Shebba farms.

The news comes just one day after Britain called for Israel to return the land to Lebanon.

Annan says that Shebba is "a thorn in need of extraction". He made no mention of the Occupied Golan Heights.

Ariel Sharon says he will not withdraw from the land which Israel claims is part of its territory.
