More die in fresh Lebanon strikes
Israeli air raids have killed at least 16 people in southern Lebanon hours after a deadly Hezbollah rocket attack on the Israeli city of Haifa.
The strikes on the port city of Tyre came as Israel continued raids, which have killed more than 115 Lebanese.
Earlier, eight civilians died and dozens were injured in Haifa, in the worst attack on Israel since clashes with Lebanon began five days ago.
Israeli PM Ehud Olmert said the attack would have "far-reaching consequences".
The Israeli air strikes began after Hezbollah seized two Israeli soldiers in a raid into Israel on Wednesday.
