La administración Bush paraliza la ONU
Annan dismay at UN inertia
Annan said action must be taken
to prevent further bloodshed

Kofi Annan has condemned an Israeli air strike that killed more than 60 Lebanese and reiterated his previous calls for an immediate ceasefire.
The UN secretary-general spoke on Sunday at an emergency meeting of the Security Council that he convened after the Israeli air strike in Qana.
"I am deeply dismayed that my earlier calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities were not heeded," Annan said.
"I repeat this call once again from this chamber and I appeal to the council to do likewise.
"Action is needed now before many more children, women and men become casualties of a conflict over which they have no control."
