Iran's Ahmadinejad to tour Lebanon-Israel border
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is due to make a visit to southern Lebanon, close to the Israeli border.
He is on the second day of a state visit that has been called provocative by Israel, the US and some Lebanese.
On Wednesday, Mr Ahmadinejad was greeted by large crowds and attended a rally organised by Hezbollah.
He praised Lebanon for "resistance to the world's tyrants". But he also said Iran supported a strong, unified Lebanon.
Iran contributed heavily to the cost of rebuilding villages destroyed in the south during the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah.
