Britain says to give $10 mln in emergency aid to Gaza
International Development Secretary Douglas Alexander said the money would help provide urgently-needed food and fuel to Palestinians cut off by the offensive launched on Saturday.

"Aid is desperately needed in Gaza," Alexander said in a statement. "The human cost of this conflict is unacceptable and the humanitarian situation is getting worse by the hour. Thousands are suffering."

Medical officials say some 385 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1000 wounded since the Israeli offensive began on Saturday.
