    Donkey carts have been a traditional form of transportation in the Gaza Strip for years - due in part to an Israeli embargo that makes petrol hard to find.

    But a new innovative motorbike cart dubbed the "Tuk Tuk" is emerging as a more popular way to get around due to its greater speed and comfort.  

    Al Jazeera's Nadim Baba reports on how a familiar sight from roads in the Far East is threatening to override the donkey taxi industry in Gaza.
