Video game highlights Gaza's siege

Israeli rights group aims to show how difficult it is to leave the Palestinian territory.

    Israel announced weeks ago that it would ease its siege on Gaza, but students who want to travel to the West Bank to study are still banned - as they have been for 10 years.

    To publicise the problem, the Israeli human rights group Gisha has created an online game that demonstrates just how difficult it is to leave the Gaza strip.
