Militants killed whole families in border village
Reporters have today been visiting the village of Kfar Aza – the site of a massace committed by Hamas near the border with Gaza.
Until this morning fighting was still going on in the kibbutz. That’s why Israeli soldiers are only now collecting the bodies of residents who were murdered.
Soldiers told the BBC’s International Editor Jeremy Bowen that Hamas stormed in, burning homes and killing families.
An Israeli officer said some of the dead had been beheaded.
