A radio broadcast that announced the names of some of the children killed during the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip has been banned in Israel.

Human rights group B'Tselem was told by the Israel Broadcasting Authority that the broadcast was "politically controversial" and has already had an appeal against the ruling rejected.

"Is it controversial that the children [aren't] alive? That they're children? That those are their names? These are facts that we wish to bring to the public's knowledge,' B'Tselem said.

More than 680 people have died in Gaza during the last fortnight, a quarter of them children.

Yesterday aid agencies said that on Monday and Tuesday a child died in Gaza every hour.

"Entire families are being wiped out in seconds as a result of the targeting of homes," said Save the Children.
