Israeli shelling kills at least 30 people in south Gaza

Intensive Israeli shelling killed at least 30 people and wounded more than 150 in southern Gaza on Friday, medics said, shattering a fragile truce only hours after it began.

AFP correspondents said the artillery barrage of the southern city of Rafah was ongoing, preventing medics from recovering the dead and wounded, after the army said Gaza militants had resumed rocket fire against Israel.
