UN says people wounded at Gaza school by Israeli fire


An unspecified number of people sheltering in an UN school in the northern Gaza Strip were wounded Thursday by an Israeli tank shell, a UN official told AFP.

"At 14:50 (1350 GMT), a shell landed in or near" an UNRWA school being used as a shelter, the official said.

"People in the shelter were hurt," he said, with a spokesman for Gaza's emergency services reporting deaths.
