AP's top editor wants investigation into Israeli bombing of its Gaza office

The Associated Press's top editor wants an independent investigation into Israel's bombing of a building in Gaza that was home to her news organisation as well as broadcaster Al Jazeera.

AP Executive Editor Sally Buzbee said that her organisation had not yet seen any evidence from Israeli officials to justify the bombing, which levelled the 12-story al-Jalaa tower block on Saturday.

Israeli officials said they carried out the strike because Hamas was operating an intelligence cell out of that office building.

"We've heard the Israelis say they have evidence," she told CNN's "Reliable Sources". "We don't know what that evidence is. We think it is appropriate at this point for there to be an independent look at what happened yesterday."
