Rescue workers search for survivors in the rubble after an apartment building in the Shiyah district was hit by an Israeli air attack. At least 41 people were killed. The area, in the south of the city, had previously been seen as relatively safe, with little evidence of local sympathy for Hezbollah (Hizbollah). Israel had launched attacks on Lebanon in retaliation for the capture of two of its soldiers by Hezbollah militants.
