Gaza aid held-up in Jordan

A bureaucratic argument with Egypt is preventing the convoy from reaching the Strip.

    Since June 2007 Gaza has been under a crippling blockade with few essential goods making it through.

    Now an aid convoy of 250 trucks and ambulances is attempting to reach the Strip to deliver much needed supplies.

    But a bureaucratic argument with Egypt is holding it back in Aqaba in southwest Jordan.

    Al Jazeera's Clayton Swisher reports.
