UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon Absolutely Appalled

UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon visited Gaza and was reported absolutely appalled at the scenes of human destruction he witnessed there.

In very forceful language he demanded that nothing like the Gaza campaign ever be undertaken again. The Secretary-General said he would do what he could to establish accountability.

Aljazeera English reports on the aftermath of the Israeli assault on Gaza, including questions about the use of white phosphorous on densely populated civilian areas, producing burns and destroying food warehouses in the midst of a famine. Many Gaza civilians are camped on the rubble of their former homes, searching frantically for loved ones who may no longer be among the living.
