Israel Frees Grocer: Vegitarians says no carrots were harmed during kidnapping...

Israel Frees Grocer Hassan Nasrallah - (AP)--Hassan Nasrallah was briefly in Israel's hands, along with three members of his family and a neighbor. Unfortunately, he was the local green grocer - not the head of Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrilla group.

Israel had snatched the four Nasrallahs and their neighbor on Aug. 1 in a commando raid in the Hezbollah stronghold of Baalbek in northeastern Lebanon, apparently believing he was related to Sheik Hassan Nasrallah and could be used to pressure the guerrilla leader, said Leah Tzemel, the Israeli attorney who obtained their release on Monday.
