The Bush administration is rushing a delivery of precision-guided bombs to Israel. Citing US officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, the New York Times said the decision to ship the weapons quickly came after relatively little debate within the administration. Meanwhile Lebanon is burrying its dead. Bodies are being places in mass graves until the fighting subsides and the bodies can be exhumed and handed over to their families. The total number of Lebanese deaths so far is not known; mounds of rubble sit undisturbed since rescue workers are too fearful of missiles to search for bodies.
