Gaza children shatter basketball record

Children in the Gaza Strip have earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Seven thousand five hundred kids all bounced basketballs at the same time for five minutes.

The world record was shattered at Gaza’s old international airport, which has been bombed several times by Israeli forces since 2001.

The event, organised by the UN and recent Palestinian college graduates, was designed to bring hope and fun to children in the besieged coastal enclave.
