Annan says Lebanon peacekeeping mission proves international solidarity

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Wednesday praised Turkey's decision to join the expanded U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon, saying such contributions were "a sign of international solidarity."
Ruling party lawmakers voted Tuesday in favor of deploying Turkish troops to monitor the cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah militants, despite objections from opposition parties and street protests by thousands. On Wednesday, police used tear gas and water cannons to break up a demonstration in Ankara by some 300 leftists protesting parliament's decision.
