Gaza officials warn of health crisis

Power cuts leave Gazans with sewage-flooded streets and hospitals resort to generators to save lives.

    There is an unpleasant stench in Gaza as raw sewage floods its streets. The Palestinian Territory's largest waste water treatment facility has stopped working after being hit by power cuts caused by fuel shortages.

    Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle reports from Gaza.
