Israel and Lebanon Exchange Prisoners Who Crossed Border Illegally

Israel and Lebanon today exchanged prisoners held briefly by each of the countries for crossing the Israeli-Lebanese frontier illegally.

Israel returned to Lebanon three Lebanese soldiers who had crossed into Israel last Thursday night. Lebanon sent back to Israel 20-year-old Moshe Mordecai, who had been held in Lebanon after crossing its border a week ago.
