Palestinians are observing a day of national mourning for at least 16 people killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers at the Gaza border on Friday.

Thousands of people are attending the funerals. Hundreds were wounded at the start of protests demanding a right for Palestinians to return to former family homes in what is now Israel.

The UN secretary-general has called for an independent inquiry into the deaths.

Israeli officials said soldiers opened fire after rioting broke out.
