U.N. school used as a shelter comes under fire

This report contains images of violence that may be disturbing to some viewers

At least 16 people are dead and 200 others are wounded after shells rained down on a U.N. school in Gaza. Families with young children were using the building as a shelter from the fighting. Israel says it is investigating the shelling and suggests it may have been a rocket fired by Hamas that hit the school. What is certain is today, young children and babies once again paid the price of war. ITN reporter Dan Rivers reports from Gaza.
