France's Fabius blasts Palestinian deaths as unacceptable

PARIS (AFP) -- French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on Tuesday blasted as unacceptable the number of Palestinian casualties as Israel continued its bloody offensive on Gaza.

"It's unacceptable that a country be threatened by rockets, but the response has to be proportionate. 600 deaths is obviously something that we cannot accept," he said in a televised interview, as the Palestinian death toll rose to more than 620 on the 15th day of a conflict that has also killed 29 Israelis.
