DOHA - The Qatari foreign minister condemned the deaths of dozens of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Sunday as a "massacre" and called for a cease-fire that would ensure the lifting of a blockade on the coastal region.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, speaking at a joint news conference with the minister, Khaled al-Attiya, described Israeli-Palestinian fighting in Gaza as an "open wound and we must stop the bleeding now".
