Palestinians hold funeral for girl who died from wounds sustained during Israel’s bombardment of Gaza

Mourners held a funeral for 10-year-old Palestinian girl Layan al-Shaer after she succumbed to the wounds she sustained in last week's Israeli air strikes in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip.

At least 17 children were killed in the three-day long bombardment and more than 151 children were wounded.
