The former Conservative party leader Michael Howard, has confronted Israel’s prime minister over the killing of hundreds of Palestinian protestors by Israeli troops using live ammunition – demanding ‘why did you have to kill them’.

Benjamin Netanyahu – who’s been in Europe to talk about the Iran nuclear deal – claimed Israel had tried to minimise casualties, blaming Hamas for using civilians as human shields.
