Egypt events spark Gaza fuel panic

Continued turmoil in neighbouring Egypt prompts Gazans to queue up to buy fuel.


    As the instability in Egypt continues, people in neighbouring Gaza have been buying fuel in panic.

    Almost everyone in the territory uses cheap fuel smuggled from Egypt.

    And while the Hamas-led government insists Gaza will not run out of fuel, it has not stopped long queues forming at petrol stations.
