Tension in North: Barak Cancels Trip to Germany

Defense Minister Ehud Barak cancelled his scheduled trip to Germany next week, because of concern over the "uncertain situation on the northern front," Channel 2 reported Wednesday.

The report said Barak's decision may be connected to the publication of a Syrian report on the assassination of Hizbullah operations officer Imad Mughniyeh and quoted him as saying that while the northern front seemed calm, "things are bubbling beneath the surface."
