Pedestrians walk past the Bank of England in the City of LondonBy David Milliken and Andy Bruce LONDON (Reuters) - Bank of England policymakers broke ranks over interest rates for the first time in three years this month, when two unexpectedly voted to tighten policy and revived speculation about a 2014 rate hike. Former academic Martin Weale and business economist Ian McCafferty both voted to raise interest rates to 0.75 percent from 0.5 percent, according to minutes released on Wednesday of the nine-member Monetary Policy Committee's meeting on Aug. 6-7. Their dissenting votes ended the longest period of unanimity in the MPC's 14-year history. Sterling rebounded from a four-month low and government bonds fell as expectations for an early rise in British interest rates were revived.

Israeli air strikes killed 11 Palestinians in Gaza, including the wife and infant son of Hamas's military leader, Mohammed Deif, in what the group said was an attempt to assassinate him after the failure of Egyptian-brokered negotiations. France supports the Egyptian mediation," Hollande told Le Monde in an interview.
