UN agency suspends Gaza missions

A United Nations political agency suspended its missions to Gaza Friday after Hamas authorities partly closed the key border crossing into Israel, a source said.

The UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East peace process (UNSCO) will not send staff to Gaza until further notice, the source close to the organization told AFP on condition of anonymity, after Hamas imposed tough new restrictions following the death of one of its members.
