Massive Israeli air raids on Gaza

Israeli F-16 bombers have hit targets across the Gaza Strip, killing more than 200 people and injuring at least 700, local medics say.

Most of those killed were policemen in the Hamas militant movement, which controls Gaza, but women and children also died, Gaza officials said.

Paul Wood reports.
