Lebanon junks talks after Israel 'war crime' in Qana
BEIRUT - Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora denounced Israel's "war crime" in raids that killed 51 people in the village of Qana on Sunday, vowing there was no place for talks until Israel ceased its attacks.

"There is no place on this sad morning for any discussion other than an immediate and unconditional ceasefire as well as an international investigation into the Israeli massacres in Lebanon now," Siniora said at a press conference.

Lebanese officials said US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was no longer expected to visit Beirut during her trip to the region following the Qana attack. AFP
