The U.N. Security Council expressed serious concern on Sunday at the escalation of violence in the Gaza conflict after meeting to discuss almost two weeks of fighting between Israel and the Islamist Hamas group that has cost more than 400 lives.

"The members of the security council called for an immediate cessation of hostilities," Rwandan U.N. Ambassador Eugene Gasana told reporters, after an emergency meeting of the 15-member council.
