Blame traded over Gaza civilian deaths

UN chief says those found guilty of attacking safe zones must be held to account after 41 people die in Gaza shelters.

    Ban Ki-moon says UN shelters must be safe zones and those found guilty of attacking them must be held to account.

    The UN secretary-general made his comments after at least 41 Palestinians were killed while sheltering in UN safe zones in Gaza that were shelled in Israeli strikes.

    Israel insists it only targeted Hamas fighters during the offensive that killed at least 1,875 Palestinians.
