Gaza's orphans learn to cope with trauma

After weeks of war, local doctors begin their work to try to rehabilitate thousands of traumatised Palestinian children.

    The seven-week war in Gaza has affected the psychological and emotional well-being of more than 370,000 Palestinian children.

    Staff at the besieged territory's only orphanage are now helping the youngsters cope with their trauma.
