Lebanon occupation's bitter legacy

Ten years after Israel's pullout, families of Christian militia members remain in anguish.

    Ten years ago, Israel's tanks trundled out of southern Lebanon after keeping a presence there for 20 years, battling both Palestinian and Lebanese fighters.

    The withdrawal was welcomed by most Lebanese, but it left the mainly Christian militia, which fought alongside the Israelis, vulnerable to investigation by the Lebanese authorities. Many of them sought refuge in Israel.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from the Israel-Lebanon border where the legacy of the war has made it dificult for some families to rebuild their lives.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
