Red Cross van attacked by civilians in Gaza

Palestinians in the south of the Gaza Strip have been fleeing in panic from their homes - as Israeli troops continue their ground offensive.

At least 11 people are reported to have been killed. Israel launched its offensive on 8 July with the declared objective of stopping rocket fire from Gaza.

Red Cross officials announced a temporary "ceasefire" in two zones so that they could evacuate wounded civilians - Khan Younis and Gaza City's Shejaiya neighbourhood.

Paul Adams met one of the Red Cross units when they were attacked by local people.
