A injured Palestinian man looks on as he lays on the ground in the middle of other injured and dead people after an Israeli strike in the Shijaiyah neighborhood, eastern Gaza City, Wednesday, July 30, 2014. Israeli strikes hit a crowded shopping area in the neighborhood, hours after tank shells tore through the walls of a U.N. school crowded with war refugees Wednesday in the deadliest of a series of air and artillery attacks that push the Palestinian death toll above 1,300 in more than three weeks of fighting. (AP Photo/Adel Hana)WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration condemned the deadly shelling of a United Nations school in Gaza Wednesday, using tough, yet carefully worded language that reflects growing White House irritation with Israel and the mounting civilian casualties stemming from its ground and air war against Hamas.

Argentina's Economy Minister Kicillof arrives at the office of a court-appointed mediator in New YorkBy Richard Lough, Eliana Raszewski and Daniel Bases BUENOS AIRES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Argentina faces its second default in more than 12 years after talks with holdout creditors failed on Wednesday. The country's economy minister, Axel Kicillof, speaking at a news conference at the Argentine consulate in New York, repeatedly referred to the holdout hedge funds as "vultures" after two days of talks failed to produce an agreement. A last-ditch plan for Argentine commercial banks to buy out the non-performing debt held by hedge funds and avert a default collapsed on Wednesday, a senior banking executive and a second source from the financial market said. "Unfortunately, no agreement was reached and the Republic of Argentina will imminently be in default," Daniel Pollack, the court-appointed mediator in the case, said in a statement on Wednesday evening.
