Israeli Soldier Killed in Lebanon

An Israeli soldier was killed and another was wounded in south Lebanon last night. The dead soldier was identified today as Ricardo Bauman, 28.

A military spokesman said the casualties were inflicted by a 10 kg. explosive charge detonated on a roadside near the Shiite village of Sarafand as an Israel army patrol passed by. Sarafand has been the scene of previous attacks on Israeli forces and searches there in the past yielded caches of arms. No weapons were found in the search conducted last night.
