Banksy goes to Gaza

British graffiti artist's work appears on walls throughout the besieged Palestinian territory.

    British graffiti artist and political activist Banksy has turned his attention to the streets and walls of the Palestinian territory Gaza.

    Banksy wants to highlight the plight of the nearly two million Palestinian people confined there beacuse of Israeli land and air blockade.

    While his work bemuses some Palestinians in Gaza, others see a political message.
