A 12-storey Gaza tower block housing the offices of the US-based Associated Press and Qatar-based broadcaster Al Jazeera collapsed on Saturday after being struck by Israeli missiles, a Reuters witness said.

The owner of the building had been warned in advance of an impending Israeli missile strike and the building had been evacuated, reports Reuters.

The Israeli military did not immediately provide comment on the incident.

The building also contained a number of apartments and other offices.
