A 12-story skyscraper in the Gaza Strip, which houses the offices of the US-based Associated Press and Qatar-based broadcaster Al Jazeera, collapsed Saturday after being hit by Israeli rockets, a Reuters witness said.
The owner of the building had been warned of an imminent Israeli missile attack, a Reuters reporter said, and the building had been evacuated.
The Israeli military did not immediately comment on the incident.
The building also contained a number of apartments and other offices.
