A man passes a gallery in LondonBritish consumer confidence fell for the first time in six months in July, a survey from researchers GfK NOP showed on Thursday, the latest sign that Britons are feeling less upbeat about the economic recovery. GfK NOP's headline consumer confidence index fell to -2 in July from 1 in June, which had been the first positive reading in the survey in nearly 10 years. "The almost relentless rise of the last six months couldn't continue indefinitely, and the government will be hoping this is just a temporary setback rather than the forerunner of a wider decline in confidence," said Nick Moon, managing director of GfK NOP Social Research, in a statement. Another consumer confidence index, compiled by Lloyds and released last week, fell for the first time this year in June and other surveys have shown that pessimism about household finances is growing.

A displaced Palestinian child waves to a friend from inside a damaged classroom at the Abu Hussein U.N. school, in Jebaliya refugee camp, northern Gaza Strip, hit by an Israeli strike earlier, on Wednesday, July 30, 2014. Israeli tank shells tore through the walls of the U.N. school crowded with war refugees Wednesday in the deadliest of a series of air and artillery attacks that pushed the Palestinian death toll above 1,300 in more than three weeks of fighting. The attack on the U.N. school in the Jebaliya refugee camp was the second deadly strike on a U.N. compound in a week. Tank shells slammed into the compound before dawn, said Adnan Abu Hasna, a spokesman for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, which is sheltering more than 200,000 people displaced by the fighting at dozens of U.N. schools across Gaza.
