Gazans missing out on school

About 40,000 children unable to start school because blockade has led to a lack of suitable buildings.

    In Gaza, 40,000 students have been unable to start school this year because there are not enough buildings to accomodate them.
     
    The United Nations Relief and Works Agency says the Palestinian territory needs at least 100 new schools but there is simply not enough construction material available because of Israel's blockade of the territory.

    Al Jazeera's Nadim Baba reports from Gaza.
