Travellers resorting to bribes to exit Gaza

A huge backlog of travel applications means many people find that bribery is only way to leave territory.

Travellers forced to bribe to cross Rafah border

Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has announced that from Monday only students, patients and foreign passport holders will be allowed to leave the territory through the Rafah crossing into Egypt.

The move is an attempt to clear the huge backlog of travel applications.

But as Nicole Johnson reports from Rafah, many people find that bribery is the only way to get out of Gaza.
