Ahern condemns Qana attacks

Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern has condemned Israel for its attack on civilians in the Lebanese town of Qana yesterday.

The minister said it beggared belief that Israel killed so many children in the conviction that they were members of Hezbollah.

Mr Ahern branded yesterday’s slaughter as 'despicable'.

“Hopefully it will bring a ceasefire closer, that’s what we've been asking for over the past two weeks,” he said.

“Hopefully people are going to come to their senses.”
