UN chief António Guterres released emergency funds to help alleviate the suffering of people in Gaza on Wednesday, and appealed for unity between Palestinians.

The Secretary-General was speaking at a school run by the UN relief and works agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) in Gaza, the narrow strip of land which is controlled by the militant group Hamas.

More details on the third day of the UN chief's inaugural visit to the region, from Matt Wells.
