In Jerusalem a senior government spokesman asked about Lahdo a offer said a i done to think it depends on Lahd or on us but on the other asked if there was any sign of movement from the other Side the spokesman said on condition of anonymity a none that i know the Sla holds the 300 shiites in Khiam a Small Village in israelis six to 10-mile-wide Security zone which stretches from the Mediterranean to the Foothills of mount Hermon.

In the past kidnappers and their backers have said the release of the shiites held by the Sla and Israel would help end the hostages ordeal. They have also said they want help locating four iranians missing in Lebanon since 1982. Lahd did not mention the four who lebanese sources say Are dead.
