"Time is running out" to resolve the Gaza conflict according to Middle East peace envoy Tony Blair.

He was speaking to BBC News after Israel resumed its air strikes on Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Israel had briefly held its fire, after accepting an Egyptian brokered ceasefire - but the armed wing of Hamas rejected the initiative.

Mr Blair - who urged the Egyptian president's involvement - said it was "frustrating" as the plan had included a long-term solution for Gaza.
