Israel agrees prisoner swap deal with Hezbollah

Israel's cabinet has approved a prisoner swap with the militant group Hezbollah.

The exchange will see the return of two soldiers, who were captured by the group two years ago.

The men are thought to be dead.

Their seizure triggered a month-long war in Lebanon.
