Adlun, Lebanon - Four men believed to be Muslim guerrillas tried to fire a Katyusha rocket at an Israeli gunboat which was imposing a blockade on south Lebanon, but the rocket exploded on the home-made launch ramp, killing one man and wounding another.

The death was the first to be linked with Israel's naval blockade of 62 miles of the south Lebanon coastline running from the Israeli frontier to within 12 miles of Beirut. Lebanon is seeking United Nations action to halt the naval blockade and the air raids that have accompanied it. Reuter
