Annan was asked to become personally involved by Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni in a one-day visit to U.N. headquarters Wednesday.
She asked on behalf of Gilad Shalit, who was kidnapped by Palestinian militants on June 25 at a Gaza Strip border patrol, and Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, who were abducted July 12 by Hezbollah militants from Lebanon. That attack spawned a month of intense fighting that ended Monday with a U.N. cease-fire.
The Post reported that in a formal letter she presented to Annan Livni said, "The fact that the kidnapped soldiers have not been released by Hezbollah is a clear violation of (the cease-fire) and I expect the international community to continue acting to bring about their immediate release."
