Israel intensifies Gaza assault, Egyptians revise truce plan

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel knocked out Gaza's only power plant and pounded dozens of other high-profile targets on Tuesday, while Egyptian mediators prepared a revised proposal for halting its war with Islamist militants in the enclave.
