Israel reportedly is to receive the bodies of three soldiers and information on Ron Arad as part of a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah. Israeli officials declined to comment on the report from a Lebanese newspaper. In return for the bodies of the soldiers missing since a 1982 battle in Lebanon, the report said, Israel would release Samir Kuntar, who killed four Israelis in 1979, among them a 2-year-old girl.
