Amputees take to the pool for swimming gala in the Gaza Strip

A group of amputees from the Gaza Strip took to the pool on Sunday (November 14) for a swimming gala. Organisers said the 12 participants were all wounded in recent conflicts with Israel. Participants called for more help from the international community for severely injured Gazans. Fighting between Israel and Gaza has flared up regularly since the election of the Islamist political party Hamas in 2005.
