UN demands immediate Gaza cease-fire

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is demanding an immediate cease-fire in Gaza and urging Mideast and world leaders to do more to help end the Israeli-Hamas conflict and promote political dialogue.
Ban said on the third day of an Israeli bombardment of Gaza that has killed at least 360 people _ including 62 women and children according to the U.N. _ and wounded some 1,400 that regional and international partners have not done enough.
The secretary-general urged Arab foreign ministers, who are holding an emergency meeting in Cairo on Wednesday, "to act swiftly and decisively to bring an early end to this impasse."
At the same time, he told reporters Monday that "other world leaders must also step up efforts to support a longer term resolution of the issue."
