UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The United Nations says about 20 peacekeepers in the force charged with monitoring the cease-fire between Israel and Syrian troops on the Golan Heights have been detained by approximately 30 armed fighters.

U.N. deputy spokesman Eduardo del Buey says the U.N. observers were on a regular supply mission Wednesday when they were stopped near an observation post which sustained damage and was evacuated last weekend following heavy combat.

He said the U.N. peacekeeping mission has dispatched a team to assess the situation and attempt a resolution.
