BBC News with Neil Nunes. The United States and the European Union have agreed to the toughest sanctions yet against Russia over its support for rebels in Ukraine. President Obama said existing sanctions had already weakened Russia's economy and the new measures would weaken it further. His announcement came hours after the EU announced similar sanctions.

“We're blocking the exports of specific goods and technologies to the Russian energy sector, we're expanding our sanctions to more Russian banks and defense companies, and we're formally suspending credit that encourages exports to Russia and financing for economic development projects in Russia. At the same time, the European Union is joining us in imposing major sanctions on Russia. It's most significant and wide-ranging sanctions today.”
 
The military wing of Hamas has rejected a truce with Israel. In a defiant message the leader of the al-Qassam Brigade said they would continue fighting until Israel stopped its bombardment and lifted the blockade of the territory. His speech came on the deadliest day of the three-week Israeli offensive in Gaza with more than 100 Palestinians reported killed. Egypt is working on a revised version of the truce Israel earlier accepted. From Gaza, Martin Patience.
 
“These were the first comments by Hamas' military commander since this conflict began. In an audio message broadcast on Hamas TV Mohammad Deif said the militant group would only agree to a ceasefire if the blockade was lifted, but the blockade has thrashed the local economy and it stopped many Palestinians from leaving the territory. Despite growing international pressure on both Israel and Hamas to end fighting, either side appears willing to back down.”

David Mcgueanis has more. “The proposal from Bernie Ecclestone to pay tens of millions of Euros to settle the case is not an admission of guilt. Mr. Ecclestone denies bribing a former German banker eight years ago in order to keep his grip on Formula One. The banker in question is now in prison. Mr. Ecclestone's lawyers described the charges against him as questionable and say there is a lack of evidence, but it appears the 83-year-old Head of Formula One is finding the trial a strain and under German law charges may be dropped in certain cases if both sides agree to settlements.”
