JERUSALEM: US President Barack Obama on Thursday demanded that foreign governments brand Hezbollah a "terrorist organisation," slamming the Lebanon-based groupfor attacks on Israelis.

"Every country that values justice should call Hezbollah what it truly is -- a terrorist organisation," Obama said in a major speech in Israel, in remarks apparently aimed at the European Union which has declined to put the group on a list of terrorist movements.
