UN chief's dismay at suffering in Gaza


The UN Secretary General has said families in Gaza are living in "unacceptable, unsustainable conditions" under the Israeli blockade.

Ban Ki-moon was speaking during a visit to an area damaged by Israel's offensive 14 months ago.

The UN has not been able to help with the rebuilding of such areas because of the blockade, but Mr Ban said the organisation still stood with Gazans.

Jon Donnison reports.
