As the Palestinian death tolls tops 120 and a cease-fire appears imminent, Gaza residents must bury the victims of seven days of aerial bombardment. This footage from Reuters shows Palestinians holding a joint funeral for a family killed in one bombing -- 4-year-old twin boys and their parents.

Reuters also reported on UNRWA's concern for the food situation in Gaza. Although there are supplies, concerns remain.
