Red tape slows Gaza rebuilding

Reconstruction of homes destroyed in Israel's war is hindered by a local government fee.

    Several thousand Palestinians lost their homes during Israel's war on the Gaza Strip launched in December 2008.

    The task of rebuilding houses is made hard by Israel's ongoing siege of the Hamas-governed Palestinian territory.

    But Palestinians also say that a local government fee is hindering rebuilding.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Gaza.
