Gaza situation 'on knife-edge' - UN chief Ban Ki-moon

The situation in Gaza "is on a knife-edge", UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said, urging Israel and Palestinian militants to end hostilities.

Mr Ban warned that the region "cannot afford another full-blown war".

His comments come after Israel said Hamas had fired dozens of rockets at Israeli cities on Wednesday night, following Israeli air strikes in Gaza.
