( dpa ) - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert received late Wednesday afternoon the final conclusions of a government-appointed commission of inquiry into the 2006 war with Lebanon's Hezbollah.

Members of the commission headed by retired judge Eliyahu Winograd arrived at Olmert's office in Jerusalem and handed the report to him as well as to Defence Minister Ehud Barak.

The long-anticipated report will be made public at a news conference in Jerusalem at 1600 GMT.

The findings are expected to contain harsh criticism of the government's and military's management of the war, but Olmert has vowed he will not quit.
