Palestinians return to gutted homes during brief ceasefire

People in Gaza have returned to their devastated homes to try to salvage their belongings during a brief ceasefire on Friday morning.

However, fighting then resumed, with Israel and Hamas accusing the other of breaking the ceasefire.

Gaza's health ministry said 53 Palestinians were killed and more than 200 injured in an Israeli attack near the southern town of Rafah after the ceasefire began.

Ian Pannell reports from Gaza City.
