Israeli soldiers also wounded scores of others.

Israeli army spokesman Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter an "organised attack" had involved around 20 Palestinians crossing the border after an explosive device destroyed a portion of the fence.

Palestinian mourners across the Gaza Strip have held funerals for seven protesters killed a day earlier.
