3 die in Gaza sewage accident

least three people in a Gaza village were killed after a large cesspool collapsed. Tuesday’s accident flooded the village with mud and sewage, and also knocked down homes.
Some 200 people were reported missing; about 3,000 people were evacuated.

Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz told the army to
provide assistance to the Palestinians in any way it could, including to prepare
for a possible evacuation of the injured to Israeli hospitals.
