Thousands of Palestinians have taken to the streets of Gaza to mourn a Hamas leader and his family killed in an Israeli raid.

Nizar Rayyan was assassinated on Thursday along with 13 members of his family.
His funeral was held in the Jabaliya refugee camp on Friday as Israeli military aircraft continued their sorties overhead.

The toll over the first seven days of Israel's aerial bombardment on Gaza has now reached 428, with the latest casualties including three children who had been playing outside.
Israel continued to bomb ground near its boundary clearing it of landmines, increasing speculation that a ground offensive is imminent. Israel says its war is against Hamas in response to home-made rockets fired into the south of the country.
