This is BBC World News Today with me Philippa Thomas.

:00:10.:00:12.

The first Israeli civilian has been killed by Palestinian rocket fire,

:00:13.:00:14.

and Israel warns it will intensify its military campaign against Hamas,

:00:15.:00:17.

Almost 200 Palestinians have now been killed by air raids.

:00:18.:00:22.

Aid agencies in the Gaza Strip are warning that

:00:23.:00:25.

the bombardment is close to destroying the water system there.

:00:26.:00:28.

More top jobs for women in the British Cabinet,

:00:29.:00:39.

up from three to five, and in the pre-election reshuffle,

:00:40.:00:41.

the Foreign Secretary William Hague steps down.

:00:42.:00:44.

At least 20 people are killed - more than 120 injured when a Moscow

:00:45.:00:48.

subway train derails at the height of morning rush hour.

:00:49.:00:50.

And we'll be in Berlin to hear all about the World Cup celebrations -

:00:51.:00:53.

a huge welcome for Germany's victorious football team.

:00:54.:01:07.

Israel's prime minister has just warned that the military campaign

:01:08.:01:12.

in Gaza will be "expanded and intensified".

:01:13.:01:18.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel had no choice

:01:19.:01:23.

as Hamas had rejected a diplomatic solution. The

:01:24.:01:25.

first serious move to try to stop the fighting and bloodshed

:01:26.:01:28.

between Israel and Hamas had come in the shape of a proposed ceasefire

:01:29.:01:35.

laid on the table by Egypt. Israel agreed it and ceased fire.

:01:36.:01:38.

But Hamas rejected the plan, saying they hadn't been consulted.

:01:39.:01:41.

And so now Israel is to press ahead and intensify the military offensive

:01:42.:01:45.

Since then more than 190 Palestinians have been killed.

:01:46.:01:51.

More than 800 Palestinian rockets have hit Israel,

:01:52.:01:57.

with at least 76 rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel today.

:01:58.:02:02.

Within the last two hours, the first Israeli civilian has been

:02:03.:02:05.

One of the places hit was the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon,

:02:06.:02:11.

from where the BBC's Quentin Sommerville sent us this report.

:02:12.:02:19.

Bringing the battle between Israel and Hamas on the control was never

:02:20.:02:24.

going to be easy. By early afternoon, cease-fire plans were

:02:25.:02:30.

already in ruins. Rocket fire from Gaza narrowly missed an Israeli fuel

:02:31.:02:35.

depot and dozens of rockets were launched while Israel observed the

:02:36.:02:40.

cruise. About 25 firefighters here think that the rocket landed over

:02:41.:02:44.

there. They are trying to hold back the fire because of our fuel tanks.

:02:45.:02:49.

They are browsing the area with water, trying to stop it spreading.

:02:50.:02:55.

It is about four hours since Israel agree to those cease-fire proposals.

:02:56.:02:59.

, says it was not party to the talks. And the rockets continue to

:03:00.:03:04.

hit Israel. -- Hammerson says it was not. -- Armas says it was not. We

:03:05.:03:14.

know that the other side is apparently not interested in

:03:15.:03:17.

cease-fire. We're prepared for the normal fighting to resume. And so it

:03:18.:03:25.

did. More Palestinians have been told by Israeli air strikes. The

:03:26.:03:29.

cease-fire was only in place for six hours. Hamas says it was not

:03:30.:03:35.

genuine, from the start. The cease-fire proposal was discussed by

:03:36.:03:41.

everyone except cars. Netanyahu and Egypt, but not Hamas. We will

:03:42.:03:45.

continue to defend our people and fight, we are fighting to better our

:03:46.:03:49.

conditions. This cease-fire proposal is like an ambush. On the Israeli

:03:50.:03:59.

side of the border, this man has a farm. By mid-afternoon, rockets and

:04:00.:04:05.

bombs were flying both ways. Violence, and more violence. This

:04:06.:04:10.

field cease-fire will likely make the con -- will be likely to make

:04:11.:04:14.

the conflict here even worse. It's the most significant reshuffle

:04:15.:04:22.

of the British cabinet since the prime minister came to

:04:23.:04:24.

power - and with ten months until the UK's next general election,

:04:25.:04:27.

David Cameron has given his He's swept away some

:04:28.:04:29.

of the old guard, increased the number of women in cabinet from

:04:30.:04:33.

three to five and - in the biggest surprise - moved Michael Gove from

:04:34.:04:38.

his job as Education Secretary. His replacement - Nicky Morgan who's

:04:39.:04:43.

only been a minister for 9 months. William Hague will be replaced as

:04:44.:04:48.

Foreign Secretary by Philip Hammond. He vacates his job as Defence

:04:49.:04:52.

Secretary - to make way for former

:04:53.:04:54.

energy minister Michael Fallon. Here's the BBC's Political

:04:55.:04:57.

Editor Nick Robinson. We counted them in and we counted

:04:58.:05:08.

them out, the ministers sacked or moved today, mostly men, and the

:05:09.:05:11.

ones promoted, some of them women. In a wide ranging reshuffle, more

:05:12.:05:17.

wide-ranging than anyone expected. The big news story of the day was

:05:18.:05:22.

the promotion of Nicky Morgan, the first of three women to get

:05:23.:05:26.

significant promotions. The answer, the job of Michael Gove. Michael

:05:27.:05:31.

Gove is saying goodbye after four years of being in charge of

:05:32.:05:35.

England's schools. Just as significant on a day that the

:05:36.:05:39.

British defence industry showed off its finest, at the Farnborough

:05:40.:05:44.

airshow, a change to the defence minister post of the new defence

:05:45.:05:47.

minister is Michael Fallon who replaces Philip Hammond, who is now

:05:48.:05:51.

the new Foreign Secretary. Tories say that he is more Eurosceptic than

:05:52.:05:56.

William Hague. He once said he would vote to leave the EU if it could not

:05:57.:06:01.

be reformed. I do not think that the way to enter negotiations is to

:06:02.:06:05.

start issuing threats. You have to look for areas where you do agree,

:06:06.:06:10.

and there are many issues where Britain is not isolated, where other

:06:11.:06:13.

EU members also understand the need for reform. William Hague will be

:06:14.:06:19.

spending much more time at home. As Leader of the Commons, you will be a

:06:20.:06:24.

pre-dash-mac a key figure in the Tories election campaign. What about

:06:25.:06:29.

the pledge that more women would take their place at the top table?

:06:30.:06:33.

Liz truss will be needing her wellies as a new Environment

:06:34.:06:40.

Secretary. The welfare Minister Esther McVey will only attend

:06:41.:06:44.

Cabinet but has is a face and a voice that you will soon be familiar

:06:45.:06:51.

with. The former TV reporter will now deploy her on-screen talent is

:06:52.:06:53.

trying to sell the Conservatives to the country. She will be helped by

:06:54.:07:00.

other women promoted to one rung below the Cabinet. He has promoted

:07:01.:07:05.

people on the basis of their talent, and that is the most

:07:06.:07:08.

important thing. Labour are not impressed. Politics has the look and

:07:09.:07:16.

sound like Britain, and when so many of the Cabinet are men, that falls

:07:17.:07:22.

short. The Labour Party has half and half men and women in their Shadow

:07:23.:07:28.

Cabinet. The worst that happened today was a new cabinet minister,

:07:29.:07:29.

trying to get into the wrong car. Well Foreign Secretary William Hague

:07:30.:07:43.

will not just be leaving the Cabinet, he's stepping down in

:07:44.:07:45.

2015 from his role Over the last four years in his role

:07:46.:07:48.

as Foreign Secretary he's faced and the descent of Syria into civil

:07:49.:07:52.

war to Cold War-style tensions over

:07:53.:07:56.

Ukraine, and his recent work hosting ending sexual violence in conflict.

:07:57.:07:58.

Angelina Jolie that focused on Writer and former Conservative MP

:07:59.:08:02.

Louise Mensch is in New York, where she moved after standing

:08:03.:08:07.

down from parliament two years ago. First, I should put it to you that

:08:08.:08:17.

this was supposed to be a reshuffle that got rid of the mail, the pale

:08:18.:08:21.

and the stale. Do you think it worked? I think it was there to

:08:22.:08:26.

promote the best people to the job. You have seen the women who have

:08:27.:08:30.

matured and grown since being elected in 2010 reaching a stage

:08:31.:08:34.

where you can promote them into senior positions. The Prime Minister

:08:35.:08:39.

has moved as fast as he could, without being gimmicky. I think it

:08:40.:08:46.

is another action-winning reshuffle. -- it is an election-winning

:08:47.:08:51.

reshuffle. But he seemed to be falling short of his target of

:08:52.:08:56.

promoting women. People forget that it is easy to have someone elected

:08:57.:09:01.

to Parliament. Before David Cameron changed selection procedures, the

:09:02.:09:06.

Conservative Party was 91% white men with no woman to a point. All of the

:09:07.:09:12.

women who have been appointed today was elected only in 2010. If Cameron

:09:13.:09:17.

had promoted them before they had learned anything about element, he

:09:18.:09:21.

would have looked very stupid. Now is about the right time for those

:09:22.:09:26.

women to have mature and Sue have come through Parliament with four

:09:27.:09:29.

years of experience, and Sir promoted them any earlier, it would

:09:30.:09:33.

have been just diverting women for the sake of it. Do you think if you

:09:34.:09:39.

had stayed you could have been one of those women walking into Downing

:09:40.:09:45.

Street today? Having served as an MP I know all of these women

:09:46.:09:48.

individually and I know how talented they are. Even from Labour, who are

:09:49.:09:53.

complaining about the number of women, we saw that this was a

:09:54.:09:59.

so-called massacre of the moderates, they were saying today on twitter,

:10:00.:10:02.

because they have nothing else to say, I have not heard any

:10:03.:10:07.

commentators say that any woman is being promoted just because she is a

:10:08.:10:13.

woman. They have got a great new team in place. William Hague is

:10:14.:10:20.

standing down with Philip Hammond taking his place. Philip Hammond is

:10:21.:10:24.

thought to be more sceptical about Britain's future in Europe. Will

:10:25.:10:28.

that set the cat amongst the pigeons? Let us hope so. This is an

:10:29.:10:37.

election -winning reshuffle. He fought a lonely but principal battle

:10:38.:10:42.

to stop Jean-Claude Juncker getting the plum job at the EU. We saw

:10:43.:10:47.

conservative ratings go up over that. We would like to stay in the

:10:48.:10:52.

EU, we like the balance of trade, but we need a strong renegotiation.

:10:53.:10:58.

David Cameron sent an important electoral signal by appointing

:10:59.:11:01.

Philip Hammond, there is no doubt about that at all.

:11:02.:11:06.

Now a look at some of the day's other news.

:11:07.:11:09.

Iraqi MPs have broken their deadlock and elected

:11:10.:11:11.

It's the first step towards forming a new government in Baghdad -

:11:12.:11:18.

a step seen as crucial to confronting the rebels who have

:11:19.:11:21.

The new speaker is a Sunni - Salim Jabouri.

:11:22.:11:25.

Parliament still has to elect a new Kurdish President and a Shia

:11:26.:11:27.

Typhoon Rammasun has made landfall with winds of up to 130 kilometres.

:11:28.:11:32.

Low-lying villages were flooded and a trail of destruction was left in

:11:33.:11:37.

its wake. No casualties have yet been reported. Parts of the

:11:38.:11:40.

Philippines are still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan,

:11:41.:11:43.

which killed more than 6,000 people last year.

:11:44.:12:05.

A French soldier has been killed in a suicide bombing in northern

:12:06.:12:08.

Mali.The Foreign Legion soldier was killed in Gao on Monday -- the ninth

:12:09.:12:11.

to die since France sent troops to its former colony in January last

:12:12.:12:14.

year. Local and foreign troops have struggled to restore order after

:12:15.:12:17.

beating back an Islamist insurgency there.

:12:18.:12:26.

21 people have been killed in an accident on the Moscow Metro -

:12:27.:12:29.

at the height of the morning rush hour. Local officials say a train

:12:30.:12:32.

came off the rails after a power surge. Oleg Boldyrev is in Moscow

:12:33.:12:35.

At mid-morning on Tuesday three carriages derailed. Rescuers are

:12:36.:12:41.

still trying to pull people out of the crumpled metal. By mid afternoon

:12:42.:12:46.

they speculated that there was nobody left alive. The injured and

:12:47.:12:51.

those who escaped unharmed well read out a long hundreds of metres of

:12:52.:12:54.

track after spending more than one hour in the darkness. The dozens of

:12:55.:12:59.

wounded had to be brought out on stretchers. The most gravely injured

:13:00.:13:08.

were flown out to hospital. We understand the majority of

:13:09.:13:11.

casualties were caused by people being flung against the wall of the

:13:12.:13:15.

carriages which derailed. I spoke to one lady who had a bad cut on her

:13:16.:13:19.

leg. She said she was thrown into the wall, into pieces of smashed

:13:20.:13:26.

glass. Another was struck by a fire extinguisher which was flung from

:13:27.:13:34.

the wall. The number of deaths kept rising through the day. The Moscow

:13:35.:13:39.

underground has seen bombs and explosions but nothing like this,

:13:40.:13:42.

from a split second malfunction of something, just exactly what is yet

:13:43.:13:48.

unknown. The authorities gave a number of theories from loss of

:13:49.:13:53.

current to sagging track. An investigation has been launched. The

:13:54.:13:59.

mayor of the city promised to return the defective linebacker service in

:14:00.:14:05.

two days. In the meantime millions of passengers on the Moscow

:14:06.:14:09.

underground will pay -- will feel uneasy at every shake of the train

Pakistan. What we understand from eyewitnesses as it was a vehicle

:15:05.:15:10.

that was chased by the police. As it failed to stop at a checkpoint, the

:15:11.:15:16.

driver drove into a busy marketplace before detonating the explosives. It

:15:31.:15:36.

of the province has been speaking to us. The enemies of Afghanistan

:15:37.:15:44.

detonated a car bomb in this area that hurt a lot of people. If you

:15:45.:15:51.

look at this destruction you will come to the conclusion this action

:15:52.:15:55.

is against Islam, against humanity and against our territory. All night

:15:56.:16:03.

we have heard a lot of air activity, helicopters are bringing the injured

:16:04.:16:07.

from Paktika to hospitals. This is the deadliest attack since we saw

:16:08.:16:10.

the presidential elections last month. Those elections still to give

:16:11.:16:15.

an indication of who the next president will be. At the weekend

:16:16.:16:23.

deal was mediated. John Kerry was here. We are expecting the

:16:24.:16:29.

widespread audit, all 8 million votes will be audited, counted again

:16:30.:16:33.

in what will be a huge logistical operation. The two presidential

:16:34.:16:40.

rivals have been meeting for the first time to try to give some shape

:16:41.:16:45.

to a pledge that each of them made. Whoever will be the winner will hold

:16:46.:16:49.

a government of national unity. Exactly what shape that will take,

:16:50.:16:52.

we still don't know. The idea that happiness is a better

:16:53.:16:55.

measure of a nation's success than income might have seemed very

:16:56.:16:58.

radical when it was first proposed but it's now influenced governments

:16:59.:17:01.

all over the world. Today we're going to look

:17:02.:17:04.

at the related issue of how Just a few facts first to put you

:17:05.:17:06.

in the picture. Around the world,

:17:07.:17:11.

more than 350 million people suffer from depression, one of the most

:17:12.:17:14.

common forms of mental disorders. It's a problem that doesn't

:17:15.:17:17.

just affect adults. Around 20% of the world's children

:17:18.:17:20.

are thought to suffer from some Whether you get treatment may

:17:21.:17:24.

depend on where you live. The World Health Organisation tells

:17:25.:17:29.

us you're 170 times more likely to find a psychiatrist in high income

:17:30.:17:32.

countries than in low income ones. With me is the economist Professor

:17:33.:17:37.

Lord Richard Layard who pioneered that "science of

:17:38.:17:39.

happiness". He's now co-authored a book called

:17:40.:17:42.

Thrive, urging political leaders to make

:17:43.:17:45.

mental health a much higher Thank you for coming in to speak to

:17:46.:17:56.

us. The economic case for prioritising mental health

:17:57.:18:02.

treatment. Mental illness is the main illness of working age in

:18:03.:18:05.

advanced countries. It has huge economic cost when people can't work

:18:06.:18:10.

or go off sick. That is why it is so wonderful we now have evidence

:18:11.:18:14.

-based psychological therapies that can lead to 50% recovery rates,

:18:15.:18:19.

lower relapse rates and therefore when you think of the costs, they

:18:20.:18:26.

get reduced by the psychological therapy and the psychological

:18:27.:18:29.

therapy pays for itself and reduced welfare benefits and lost taxes. It

:18:30.:18:33.

pays for itself a second time over introducing physical health care

:18:34.:18:38.

costs because mentally health people cost 50% more than those who have

:18:39.:18:48.

physical illness. You can show that completely covers the cost to the

:18:49.:18:51.

health care authorities providing more psychological therapy because

:18:52.:18:54.

of the savings on the physical. Tell us about the psychological therapy

:18:55.:19:00.

that works, we know works. We have talked about what drugs can tackle

:19:01.:19:04.

mental illness but here in the UK there has been some pioneering work

:19:05.:19:08.

on behavioural therapy. Cognitive therapy. It works by getting people

:19:09.:19:17.

to think better and that leads to them feeling better. And behaving

:19:18.:19:24.

more constructively. This is the breakthrough therapy which has been

:19:25.:19:27.

really well be searched so we now know but the outcomes of that. It

:19:28.:19:32.

has much longer lasting effects and drugs do. That is the preferred

:19:33.:19:40.

treatment for 75% of people. Do main teaching people how to adopt the

:19:41.:19:45.

different anchor? Yes, yes. This is the good news. We have rolled it out

:19:46.:19:51.

in Britain. Half a million people are getting treated. We have trained

:19:52.:20:01.

6000 therapists. It is not costing us anything so it is a no-brainer.

:20:02.:20:05.

The other point want to make is the cost isn't the only thing. The main

:20:06.:20:09.

thing is human suffering. The research we have done shows that in

:20:10.:20:15.

rich countries mental illness is the biggest single cause of human

:20:16.:20:17.

suffering, more than physical illness, and a lot more than two

:20:18.:20:21.

subjects I worked on which is poverty and unemployment. We need to

:20:22.:20:25.

raise the profile of mental illness. I centre 's sake it should have a

:20:26.:20:31.

Cabinet Minister. -- I sometimes say. That is a surprising fact you

:20:32.:20:38.

are giving us. People tend to think about cancer or heart disease,

:20:39.:20:43.

mental illness occurs it is abstract seems to fall down the list of

:20:44.:20:49.

priorities. The extraordinary thing is the WHO figures show in terms of

:20:50.:20:55.

morbidity, in rich countries, mental illness accounts for about twice as

:20:56.:20:59.

much as cancer, heart disease, stroke and respiratory illness. It

:21:00.:21:06.

it gets such a small fraction of the effort and has such a low prestige.

:21:07.:21:11.

This has got to be be attacked and changed. Thank you very much to talk

:21:12.:21:13.

that through with us. The European Parliament has

:21:14.:21:16.

confirmed Jean-Claude Juncker as president of the European

:21:17.:21:19.

Commission. He'll succeed the current president,

:21:20.:21:21.

Jose Manuel Barroso, in November. Our correspondent, Chris Morris in

:21:22.:21:23.

Strasbourg, explained the background to his appointment and what his

:21:24.:21:26.

first order of business will be. It is hardly unexpected that Jose

:21:27.:21:36.

Manuel Barroso -- Jean-Claude Juncker is confirmed as the next

:21:37.:21:41.

president. He needed a minimum of 300 and 76 -- three and 76 votes.

:21:42.:21:53.

But 250 MEPs against him. He certainly won't have everything his

:21:54.:21:57.

own way as he tries to set out an agenda for the next five years. His

:21:58.:22:01.

first task now is basically to set out the new commission. It has to

:22:02.:22:05.

have one representative from each of the 28 member states and there's

:22:06.:22:08.

lots of jockeying going on between different countries about who they

:22:09.:22:13.

will nominate and which policy portfolios their nominee is going to

:22:14.:22:18.

get. Overall, looking at the next five years, the big challenge for

:22:19.:22:21.

Jean-Claude Juncker is pretty clear. It is the challenge for the

:22:22.:22:26.

European Union, how to improve the economy in the Eurozone, how to

:22:27.:22:30.

improve the governance. There are millions of young unemployed in

:22:31.:22:35.

Europe. Even though the Eurozone crisis is well past his critical

:22:36.:22:40.

phase it is not over stop there will be other things he will have to do.

:22:41.:22:45.

Notably, dealing with the issue of whether Britain stays in all these

:22:46.:22:49.

the European Union. He was rather bruised by Britain's implacable

:22:50.:22:55.

opposition to his nomination as president of the European

:22:56.:22:57.

Commission. He won that fight and when it comes to Jean-Claude Juncker

:22:58.:23:02.

and Britain, Bridges will need to be built.

:23:03.:23:03.

It is hardly unexpected that Jose Manuel Barroso -- Jean-Claude

The team that won the World Cup for Germany has been given

:23:09.:23:10.

Hundreds of thousands of fans gathered at the Brandenburg

Gate to celebrate the men's arrival and Lucy Hockings was there for us,

At many talked about how they thought were the way young boys of

winning the World Cup. Imagine arriving home today, walking along

:23:33.:23:35.

the States, holding the World Cup and looking down at this. Half an

:23:36.:23:41.

onion people gathered here to see them and welcome them home. The fans

:23:42.:23:46.

have been so excited. They are so proud of their team. It must've been

:23:47.:23:56.

the most glorious moment for them. People are stretched as far as the

:23:57.:24:01.

eye can see. Ever since Sunday night, the entire country has been

:24:02.:24:05.

completely ecstatic and the party is going to continue for some time yet.

:24:06.:24:11.

They add showing no sign of leaving. We should leave the last words at

the fans. Making sushi is considered a bit of

our food but that isn't how this woman rolls. She has transformed

this woman rolls. She has transformed the of art. Her designs

:24:48.:24:58.

include faces that's change when you get them through. She was inspired

:24:59.:25:02.

to make out using materials everyone would have at home. For Japanese it

:25:03.:25:10.

is unheard of for a house not to have rice and seaweed even when I

:25:11.:25:15.

lived alone I had that. I thought I could do something with those. That

:25:16.:25:20.

is the added challenge of making sure the art not only looks good

:25:21.:25:28.

that tastes good as well. This goes into your body is too if you just

:25:29.:25:31.

paint a picture it may not have that much influence. This isn't something

:25:32.:25:36.

you look out, it is something you can experience in a variety of ways.

:25:37.:25:41.

She is sharing her skills and holding workshops teaching others

:25:42.:25:47.

how to make their own masterpieces. It feels like I've made my own

:25:48.:25:51.

artwork, more than making food. You can eat it that it is your own

creation. A creation that may not stay on display for too long! A

:25:58.:26:05.

reminder of our main news. Israel's Prime Minister has warned the

military campaign in Gaza will be intensified unless --. How mass

or any of our stories @PhilippaBBC. But for now, from me and the rest

:26:43.:26:46.

of the team, goodbye. We saw a dry day on Tuesday with the

:26:47.:27:01.

exception of a few showers across northern Scotland. We'll see more

rain come on Wednesday but what will really notice is somewhat of an

timidity of driving across the country. It is all tied in with this

set of weather front. It'll bring the rain across
