GAZA - Israeli missiles blasted a tower block that houses many international media for a second straight day on Monday, targeting a computer shop in the building, witnesses said.

Medics said one person died in the attack while several people were wounded. The dead man was believed to be the owner of the shop located on the third floor of the building. A Gaza source says the dead man is an Islamic Jihad terrorist.

Witnesses said it was hit by at least three missiles, which sent debris flying into the street below and set the shop ablaze.

The building also houses the offices of Britain's Sky News and Saudi-owned Al Arabiya Channel. Most journalists left the premises on Sunday following the initial strike.
