Cease-fire taking root in Israel-Lebanon
The U.N. must now replace the troops with a substantial peacekeeping force in south Lebanon although details are still sketchy. Lebanese troops will also deploy in force near the border with Israel.
Residents on both sides of the border also began returning to their homes, which in some cases had been destroyed or damaged.
Turkey, Pakistan, Malaysia and France have volunteered to commit troops to the 15,000 strong international peace-keeping force.
