Gaza residents denied eye treatment

Palestinians on the verge of blindness have been blocked from getting vital health care.

    Aid agencies have cautioned that Israel's blockade of Gaza is putting the health of many Palestinians at risk.

    Last week, Israeli authorities prevented 19 patients from crossing over to the West Bank for cornea implants that could save their sight.

    Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Gaza on the detrimental effects of a blockade with no end in sight.
