A Bradford MP faced a storm of protest today over comments he posted on Twitter about the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
David Ward, the Lib Dem MP for Bradford East, said if he lived in Gaza he would 'probably' fire a rocket at Israel.
Hundreds of civilians have died there in the past few weeks and world leaders have been calling for a ceasefire to stem the bloodshed.
Mr. Ward initially stood by his remarks but after widespread criticism, not least from his own party, he issued an apology. Chris Kiddey reports.
