The Rev. Jesse Jackson said he would ask Hezbollah for evidence that two Israeli soldiers it is holding hostage are alive. “The Israelis want some physical evidence, some verification, some sign of life,” Jackson, who has been on a goodwill mediation trip in the Middle East, said Sunday in a Reuters interview. “That could break the deadlock and I think we are very close.” Jackson flew to Beirut over the weekend after talks with Israeli leaders in Jerusalem.
