WASHINGTON — Two Lebanese-American members of Congress, Reps. Mary Rose Oakar (D-Ohio) and Nick J. Rahall II (D-W.Va.), flew to Lebanon on Friday to try to persuade warring factions to accept an Arab League peace plan.

Clovis Maksoud, ambassador of the Arab League in the United States, said that Oaker and Rahall, as influential members of the Lebanese-American community, will meet with Maj. Gen. Michel Aoun, leader of the Lebanese Christian community, and Sunni Muslim leader Salim Hoss and leaders of other factions.
