Israel and Lebanon agree a truce

UN peacekeepers say they've negotiated a truce between Lebanon and Israel after a weekend of violence.

There were gun battles across the border which left a Lebanese Hizbollah member dead and a Palestinian militant was also killed.

Earlier Israel air bombed two Palestinian refugee camps: one near Beirut and another near the Syrian border.

That attack followed missile launches into Israel.

It all started with Israel's assasination of the brother of an Islamic Jihad leader in Sidon on Saturday.
