Lebanese premier rejects Israeli security proposal

Prime Minister Rashid Karami rejected Israel's proposals Wednesday for security arrangements in south Lebanon, terming them an infringement of Lebanese sovereignty. He was referring to Israeli demands that a pro-Israeli local militia control a 19-mile-wide southern border strip and that the Lebanese Army play a secondary role to UN troops in the rest of the south.
