Riyadh: Saudi King Abdullah said today that world silence over Israeli "war crimes" in the Gaza Strip was "inexcusable," in a speech published by the official SPA news agency.

"We see the blood of out brothers in Palestine being shed in collective massacres, that have spared nobody, and in war crimes against humanity... All taking place under the eyes and ears of the international community... That has stood indifferently watching events in the whole region," the king said.

"This silence is inexcusable," he said.
