Obama voices concern about casualties in Gaza

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is expressing serious concern about the rising number of casualties in the Gaza Strip.

Obama on Monday called for an immediate ceasefire. He’s asking Secretary of State John Kerry to do whatever he can to help negotiate one at talks in Egypt.
