Israel has said that it will ease the blockade of the Gaza Strip and start allowing lorries carrying goods in.

This comes after extreme international pressure on Israel following a deadly raid by its soldiers on an aid flotilla heading to Gaza, in which nine activists were killed.

Israel said it will now allow all goods into the territory except for weapons and items deemed to have a military use.

But Israel's critics and humanitarian groups say that the easing of the blockade is not enough. 

The blockade has been in place since the Hamas takeover of the strip three years ago.
