"U.S., France agree on cease-fire package."

The United States and France agreed Saturday on a draft U.N. Security Council resolution that “calls for a full cessation of hostilities based upon, in particular, the immediate cessation by Hezbollah of all attacks and the immediate cessation by Israel of all offensive military operations.”

UPDATE: Text of the draft resolution here.

UPDATE II: The violence continues: “Israeli troops fought gun battles with Hizbollah in south Lebanon and warplanes hit roads and bridges across the country on Sunday, hours after the U.N. Security Council received a draft resolution to end the war.”
