Pro-Palestinian rally taking place in Edinburgh

Hundreds of people have taken part in a march and rally in Edinburgh in support of the Palestinian people.

Marchers urged the Scottish government to call for an end to what they described as an "ongoing massacre" in Gaza.

At least 40 Palestinians and three Israelis have died since Israel killed Hamas's military chief on Wednesday.

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has urged both Israel and the Palestinians to make efforts to halt the violence
