JERUSALEM (Reuters) - France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said after talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday that attempts to reach a ceasefire in Israel's 12-day confict with Gaza militants had failed.
Fabius, who flew to Israel after talks in Egypt and Jordan, told reporters after meeting with Netanyahu:
"Sadly I can say that the call for a ceasefire has not been heard, and on the contrary, there's a risk of more civilian casualties that worries us."
