Missile hits civilian boat off Lebanon

A missile fired at an Israeli naval vessel off Lebanon hit a civilian boat, possibly from Egypt, the Israeli army said early on Saturday

    A spokeswoman said those on board were believed to have been evacuated, but it was unclear if there were any casualties.
       
    After initially saying the missile had been fired at the Israeli vessel in a new strike early on Saturday, the spokeswoman later said it might have been part of an attack late on Friday when an Israeli warship was badly damaged.
