Israel has turned down calls for an immediate ceasefire in its offensive in the Gaza Strip as casualties continue to pour into Gaza's over-stretched hospitals.

The ground operation was preceded by a campaign of aerial bombardment which Israel said was aimed at stopping militants from firing rockets into Israel.

BBC producer Rushdi Abu Alouf has visited the remains of a mosque in Gaza which was hit.
