In pictures: Gaza's Samouni Street

Trapped with corpses

Ahmed Samouni, 16, was trapped for four days with the bodies of his three brothers, mother and several other relatives. He and three children with him were found barely conscious.

Survivors say Israeli fire hit the house of Wa'el Samouni, where the soldiers had told people from nearby homes to gather.

Family members say no fighters were nearby, but the Israeli military say a rocket propelled grenade was fired from near the house and militants were spotted in the yard.
