Israel bombed an apartment building being used as a shelter, killing at least 60, with 19 of them children in Qana, Lebanon.

This led to rioting, with a crowds of angered Lebanese attacking the UN building in Beirut. . Reuters reports,
Lebanese protesters broke into the United Nations headquarters in Beirut on Sunday, smashing windows and ransacking offices, after an Israeli air strike killed at least 40 people in south Lebanon.

Several thousand people massed outside the building in downtown Beirut chanting "Death to Israel, death to America. We sacrifice our blood and souls for Lebanon".

By early afternoon, most protesters had drifted away leaving a few hundred people milling in a car park opposite the building, which was being protected by a line of Lebanese soldiers.

Geir Petersen, the personal representative of U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan in Lebanon, condemned the Israeli attack on the village of Qana and called for an immediate investigation.


"I strongly condemn today's killing of tens of civilians by Israeli shelling of residential buildings in the village of Qana," he said in a statement.



The unedited images of bloody, horrific mass carnage are being broadcast throughout the arab world, raising the anger.

Lebanon told Condeleeza Rice she was not welcome. The Washington Post, CNN, Fox and Rice spin it, saying Rice "postponed" her visit to Lebanon. Voice of America reported,
Speaking shortly after the attack a visibly angry Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said he would not hold scheduled talks with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Fox news, ignores the situation altogether.


This is the second Qana massacre. In 1996, over 100 Lebanese civilians were killed and 100 injured by an Israeli attack. Then and now, Israel claimed the deaths were unintentional, because they were going after Hizbollah militants firing rockets into Israel. US TV news speculates that the latest rocket attacks by Hizbollah used the building that was targetted by Israel today.
