REUTERS - Lebanon’s Shi’ite militant group Hezbollah denied on Monday any role in an attack which wounded five French U.N. peacekeepers last week, a day after France’s Foreign Minister Alain Juppe blamed Syria and Hezbollah for the bombing.

In a statement, Hezbollah urged Juppe to “correct his position and pay heed to the seriousness of such accusations which represent a great injustice, and which we completely reject”.
