    The UN's human rights chief is calling for an independent investigation into Israel's violent crackdown on Palestinian protesters.

    Israeli army snipers shot dead at least 62 people at the Gaza-Israel border on Monday.

    Palestinians have been demonstrating for more than a month calling for their right to return.

    Speaking to the UN Human Rights Council, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein urged Israel to fulfil its international obligations and protect Palestinians.
