Deadly Hezbollah attack on Haifa
Rockets fired by Hezbollah militants in Lebanon have killed at least eight people and wounded many others in the coastal Israeli city of Haifa.
Meanwhile, Israeli jets have hit targets in the south of the Lebanese capital Beirut, including Hezbollah's al-Manar TV and a power station.
The fifth day of violence came as the UN Security Council failed to agree on a statement calling for a ceasefire.
The Israeli air raids began after Hezbollah seized two Israeli soldiers.
It is the second time Haifa has been hit by Hezbollah rockets in recent days and the worst attack on Israel since hostilities with Lebanon broke out.
At least five rockets are reported to have landed in the city, including one which hit a train station.
