Prime Minister Gordon Brown has condemned the Israeli shelling of the United Nations HQ in Gaza as "indefensible".
The UN building was set alight by the bombardment as its secretary general Ban Ki-moon visited the area on a mission to secure a ceasefire.
Mr Brown, speaking on his return from Berlin and Paris, where he had discussed the crisis, said: "Today's attack on the UN headquarters in Gaza is indefensible.
"The UN's mission in Gaza is purely humanitarian, bringing relief to civilians suffering in appalling conditions as a result of the ongoing military action and restrictions on food and medical supplies entering Gaza
