The wife and child of a Hamas militant leader have reportedly been killed in Israeli air strikes on Gaza which have left 11 people dead.

A Hamas official in Cairo said Israel had been targeting Mohammed Deif, the head of its armed wing.

Israel said about 50 rockets had been fired from Gaza on Tuesday and another 20 on Wednesday, although no injuries have been reported.

The hostilities resumed hours before a temporary ceasefire was due to expire.

Yolande Knell reports from Gaza.
