Gaza crisis: 'Hopes for a ceasefire diminishing'

Targeted attacks between Israel and Gaza have continued for a third day, despite a planned ceasefire for a visit by the Egyptian prime minister.

President Mohammed Mursi said he would not leave Gaza on its own and condemned Israel's "blatant aggression", hours after his prime minister visited Gaza.

Israel mounted a huge attack overnight, targeting dozens of locations. Later, Gaza militants targeted Tel Aviv with a missile but there were no casualties.

The BBC's Wyre Davies said hopes for a ceasefire were "diminishing by the hour."
