Refugees stream back to southern Lebanon

by Mark5019 / August 14, 2006 1:34 PM PDT

TYRE, Lebanon (CNN) -- Thousands of civilians forced from their homes by 34 days of fighting poured back into war-ravaged southern Lebanon Monday, hoping that a fragile cease-fire would not crumble.

About 10 rockets were fired inside southern Lebanon late Monday, the Israeli military said early Tuesday. The Israel Defense Forces initially said the weapons were Katyushas -- which are commonly used by Hezbollah -- but have since stepped back from that.

The rockets landed inside Lebanese territory, and Israeli forces will not respond to their firing, a military spokesman said.

Earlier, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said the cease-fire agreement -- which went into effect at 8 a.m. local time (1 a.m. ET) -- "appears to be generally holding."

That was despite four clashes between Israeli forces and Hezbollah fighter

i wonder how long this so called peace will hold:(

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
