Turmoil in Gaza continues

Thursday, January 01, 2009

The new year in Gaza is taking up where the old one left off, in a blizzard of Israeli bombs and Hamas launched rockets. Israeli jets bombed the Palestinian parliament building and navy ships opened fire at Hamas positions along the coastline and Hamas fired at least three rockets into Israel. Meanwhile, the United Nations security council held an emergency session late yesterday. Mike Sargent is covering the story for our partner, the BBC. He joins us from Jerusalem for the latest from the ground.
