Gaza donations double after DEC aid appeal screened - Times Online

Gaza donations double after DEC aid appeal screened - Times Online: "Donations to an emergency fund for Gaza doubled overnight after three TV channels broadcast an appeal that the BBC and Sky News have refused to show.

Members of the public have now pledged over £1 million to help tackle the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) said today.

Terrestrial broadcasters ITV, Channel 4 and Five showed the DEC’s televised appeal for donations last night.

More than 100 MPs from all parties have signed an early day motion criticising the decision taken by BBC and Sky News not to air the three-minute film."
