Members of the Security Council have been trying since Monday to reach a consensus statement condemning the killing of two soldiers of the Nigerian contingent of the United Nations Interm Force in Lebanon, but their efforts have failed so far over whether to mention Israel as responsible for the tragedy. According to sources here, the United States, while condemning the attack by Christian forces headed by Maj. Saad Haddad, is unwilling to endorse a statement citing Israel.
