By Alex Thomson

Updated on 04 January 2009

An Israeli missile kills 12-year-old Mahmoud Mashharawi, the brother of a cameraman working for Channel 4 News in Gaza.

Amongst the Palestinians killed today was a young boy caught by Israeli gunfire while playing on a rooftop.

Twelve-year-old Mahmoud Mashharawi is the brother of a freelance journalist who has been filming and working for Channel 4 News in Gaza.

Despite his own family tragedy, Ashraf Mashharawi managed to send us the images surrounding his brother's death and the impact on his family.

The family were keen that the story of what happened to them today should be told.

Our report contains some highly distressing images from the very start.
