UN Chief: Gaza is 'An Open Wound'

United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel on Sunday to "exercise maximum restraint" and spare civilian lives in its campaign in Gaza, AFP reports.

He also condemned what he called the "atrocious action" of Israel in Shejaiya, near Gaza City, where 62 people were killed in an Israeli attack on Hamas terrorists.
