Israeli minister dives for cover


Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip sent missiles into Israel following three days of Israeli bombing raids on Gaza.

Israeli trade and industry minister, Eli Yishai, was forced to take cover during an interview as rocket warning sirens went off around him.

Mr Eli Yishai, who is also the leader of Israel's ultra-Orthodox Shas party, is seen diving to the ground next to a car, as an official shields him in Ashdod, Israel.
