(Amsterdam) -- Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki is pushing to make Palestine a member of the International Criminal Court so it can prosecute Israel for alleged war crimes. Malki met with the court today and said there is "clear evidence" that Israel is committing crimes against humanity in Gaza. Meanwhile, three-day ceasefire in the Gaza Strip appears to be holding. The weeks-long conflict has claimed the life of hundreds of Palestinians and dozens of Israelis.
