Lebanon demands Israel return bodies of three Hezbollah men killed this week

Says Haaretz today.

"What is required is the handover of the bodies of the resistance fighters who fell as martyrs during the latest confrontations in order to defuse the tension on Lebanon's international border," Prime Minister Fuad Saniora told reporters during a visit to Qatar on Wednesday.

Translated into a plain French, it means - you better return the stiffs, or else.

And we thought it is finders - keepers!

Can't we keep at least the ears, Mr. Saniora?
