As the death toll in 1 May’s Gaza City raid rose to 12, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan declared himself ‘deeply concerned’ by the move and warned that such incidents endangered any progress on the peace roadmap. ‘He [Annan] stresses that such actions, including the reported house demolitions, are contrary to international law,’ the statement said. ‘He believes that they contradict the international community’s efforts to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, following yesterday’s presentation of the roadmap to the parties.’
