Gaza's Health Ministry says the number of Palestinian protesters killed by Israeli army fire near the Gaza border has risen to 55, including five children. Monday's deaths bring to 93 the number of protesters killed since mass border protests against a decade-old blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory began in late March.
