Militant group Hezbollah on Monday rejected French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe's accusation that it was behind the attack on UN peacekeepers in Lebanon last week that left five French soldiers wounded.

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”.
