Some fresh comments to bring you from the Vatican City as Pope Francis renewed his call for an "immediate" ceasefire in Gaza.

The Pope's remarks come hours after the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a non-binding resolution which also demands a ceasefire.

During his audience, Pope Francis added: "May this great suffering for the Israelis and the Palestinians be over".

He also urged the immediate release of all Israeli hostages and the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza.
