Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon soon will ask his Cabinet to approve a possible prisoner swap with Hezbollah. As part of the deal, Israel is expected to receive kidnapped Israeli businessman Elhanan Tannenbaum, along with the bodies of three kidnapped Israeli soldiers, Benny Avraham, Omar Souad and Adi Avitan. Israel would release some Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners, including Hezbollah leader Sheik Abdul Karim Obeid and Shi’ite activist Mustafa Dirani.
