Rosh Hanikra, Israel (AP) Family and friends outside the homes of two captured Israeli soldiers burst into tears today when TV showed Lebanese guerrillas turning over two black coffins. They're believed to contain the bodies of Israeli soldiers captured two years ago.

If Israeli forensic experts positively identify the bodies as Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, Israel will turn over five Lebanese prisoners to the Hezbollah guerrilla group.

The Israeli servicemen had been presumed dead but there had been no confirmation.

Their Hezbollah captors had withheld any information about them since they were captured two years ago in a cross-border raid that touched off a monthlong war.
