Gaza toll passes 300 as UN chief heads to region

The latest Israeli air strikes kill 10 people in Gaza overnight, hiking the death toll above 300 as UN chief Ban Ki-moon heads to the region to bolster truce efforts.

An early-morning air strike outside a mosque in the southern city of Khan Yunis kills seven people, including a woman, medics say, with other raids shortly afterwards bringing the total death toll to 306 Palestinians and two Israelis.

The UN said yesterday that Ban would fly to the region later today in a bid to end the violence.
