14 dead as Palestinian truce fails again

At least 14 people have died in clashes between Palestinian groups, Fatah and Hamas, as another truce between the two rival factions collapses. Hamas officials say gunmen fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the home of Prime Minister Ismail Haniya in Gaza. It is the third time since Monday that the Hamas leader has come under attack. Hamas and Fatah have agreed seven ceasefires in just over a month in a bid to end a power struggle that has left at least 60 people dead.

The United Nations has begun a massive polio immunization drive in Ethiopia. The four-day, house-to-house campaign, aims to protect more than 14 million under five year olds from the disease. The polio virus mainly affects children under five and can very quickly cause total paralysis. As a result of previous immunization efforts, Ethiopia had been polio-free since January 2001.

China secret laws criticised by rights group

A human rights charity says China's "complex and opaque rules" to protect state secrets clash with commitments on freedom of expression.

China is in the process of reforming its state secret system.
