Jan. 9 - Gaza children trapped four days with dead and wounded relatives in house where Israeli soldiers told them to shelter.

Children in Gaza recounted their ordeal after Israeli soldiers moved them and dozens of family members into a house which was then hit by shells, killing at least 30 people. Human rights groups say Israel prevented medical teams from getting to the house for four days. A top U.N. human rights official called for independent investigations into possible war crimes committed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip. Penny Tweedie reports. SOUNDBITES:
