News Brief


Hezbollah denied a report that its leader was poisoned and by Israel.

The state-affiliated Iraqi Web site Almalaf reported Wednesday that Hassan Nasrallah was poisoned last week and Iranian doctors rushed to Lebanon Sunday to save him.

Israel was responsible for the assassination attempt, the site said, citing its sources.

The report said Nasrallah continues to feel ill after being in critical condition for several days.
