"Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon accused Israeli soldiers of using excessive force in a May 15 incident by firing live ammunition at unarmed Lebanese demonstrators trying to breach a border fence. Ban said Wednesday a preliminary report by the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Lebanon also accused the demonstrators, who threw stones and petrol bombs and tried to bring down the fence, of carrying out 'a provocative and violent act.'"
