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.

    Enough of your duplitious reporting of the gaza events. i think you act as lazy journalists who do not have the courage or the decency to go out and report how hamas is hiding behind civilians show us pictures and videos of these instead of only reporting one sided events about the civilians. you have no guts, and are no journalist, only are creating more enmity against israel. maybe you also hate israel to the extent that you have no remorese about making a primetime event only reporting the gaza civilians, and blaming israel for everything??
    so far i have not seen you reporting anything about hamas fighting behind civilians..
    is this due to the fact that you run on gulf petro state money???
    how about some guts, and you go out and report about hamas militias!! show us some videos?? let us see it, so that you can convince us that you are an unbiased news reporting organization and not an voice of hamas tv station.. ets see if you can rise to the challenge!!! cnn!!

    This coverage was gut wrenching. How – in the name of God – do the justify their actions?! What's WRONG with these people?? Why are they STILL fighting over the same tired BS after hundreds of years?! It's basically about religion! I just don't get it! They simply look like murderous old fools! And the mind boggling reality that children outnumber the adults is STAGGERING! Those poor babies. I can;t help but cry when I see them suffering. My God.
