Arab League says 10 ministers to visit Gaza

Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi will cross into Gaza from Egypt
Tuesday, accompanied by 10 Arab foreign ministers, in a show of support for
the Palestinians, the league's deputy secretary general told AFP.

The delegation is expected to reach the crossing around noon (1000 GMT),
said Ahmed Ben Hilli, adding that Turkey's foreign minister will also join
the mission.

"The main goal is to express Arab solidarity and support for the
steadfastness of the people and Gaza," he said.

At least 112 Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed since Israel
launched air strikes against the Hamas-controlled territory last Wednesday
in a bid to stop militants firing rockets into the Jewish state.

The delegation will visit hospitals and perhaps relatives of victims of the
conflict between Hamas and Israel, now in its sixth day, he said.

Ben Hilli did not identify the ministers, but an Arab League official had
earlier said they included those from Jordan and Morocco. Ben Hilli said the
delegation would include ministers from North Africa, the Levant and the
Gulf.
