Save the Children has published the names of the hundreds of children killed in Gaza during the last month.

The charity took out full-page adverts in UK newspapers, including the i paper, to publish the names of 373 children who died during Israel's Operation Protective Edge.

"To see the names of the children, some as young as a few months, written in stark black and white brings home the tragedy that has befallen Gaza's children," said Save the Children chief executive officer Justin Forsyth.

According to the latest United Nations figures, the death-toll has already risen since the adverts were sent to print, with 408 children now thought to have died, out of a death-toll of 1,814 Palestinians.

Sixty-six Israelis have died, all but two of them soldiers, as well as one Thai national.
