Israeli troops attacked southeast of Beirut

An ambush southeast of Beirut killed two Israeli soldiers and wounded two others, Tel Aviv military command said. The report said gunmen fired Soviet-made rifles and then escaped. The attack - the second on Israeli troops in two days - occurred in an area of the Shouf Mountains controled by Druze Muslim militias.

In Jerusalem, meanwhile, a military court convicted four Israeli soldiers of brutality in putting down Palestinian riots last year in the occupied West Bank. Israel Radio said three other soldiers were acquitted.
