Saudi Arabia urges US 'to end Israel barbaric attack' in Gaza

"Superpowers should take responsibility to stop these attacks," the official Saudi Press Agency reported, citing a telephone conversation between Saudi King Abdallah and U.S. President George W. Bush.

King Abdallah said the attack was a continuation of "Israeli policies of occupation and mistreatment of Palestinians".

The Israeli air strikes on the Gaza strip on Saturday killed more than 200 people.

The head of a bloc that groups Washington's Gulf allies described the attacks as barbaric and ugly.
