The Lebanese Army has captured 14 Israeli girls in a village near the frontier, the Beirut Government reported today. The girls, mostly teen-agers, were wearing uniforms and carrying rifles and a submachine gun, the Lebanese report claimed. They were disarmed and taken under guard to Sidon for investigation and detention. The girls claimed they lost their way. They were seized on Sunday about a half-mile inside the frontier.
