    Being a policeman is a risky job, no matter where you are in the world, but in Gaza there is added danger.

    Israel has bombed Gazan police stations in the past, in response it says, to Palestinian rocket attacks into southern Israel.

    But that increased risk has not deterred thousands of Palestinian men from applying to join the force.

    As Ayman Mohyeldin reports, many have few alternatives.
