DUBAI (Reuters) The chief of the Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah said his organisation did not tell France that the two Israeli soldiers it captured in 2006 were alive and declined to give any clues to their fate.

Hezbollah’s seizure of two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid on July 12, 2006, resulted in a 34-day war between the Iranian-backed group and Israel in which about 1,200 Lebanese and 157 Israelis were killed.
