Obama breaks silence on Gaza, voices concern

US president-elect Barack Obama, breaking his silence about the Gaza war, expressed deep concern on Tuesday about the loss of civilian lives in Gaza and in Israel.


Obama told reporters "the loss of civilian life in Gaza and Israel is a source of deep concern for me." But otherwise he said he would adhere to his principle that only US President George W. Bush would speak for American foreign policy at this time, but said he would have plenty more to say after his Jan. 20 inauguration. (Reuters)
