UN halts Gaza aid shipments, cites Israeli attacks

The United Nations says it is halting all aid deliveries to the besieged Gaza Strip. It is citing a series of Israeli attacks on U.N. staff and installations.
The announcement came shortly after the driver of a U.N. truck was killed by tank fire as he was headed to an Israeli border crossing to pick up an aid shipment.
The U.N. said the delivery had been coordinated with Israel. The Israeli army has not commented.
