Group tries to bring aid to journalists in Gaza

The Doha Centre for Media Freedom yesterday attempted to take equipment and supplies to besieged Palestinian journalists in the Gaza Strip.

The supplies include first-aid kits, paper, pens, notebooks, batteries, radios and cameras from Cairo. About 20 foreign journalists were travelling with the convoy, hoping to get into Gaza to report on the situation.

The Israeli army has so far refused to allow foreign journalists into Gaza.

Of the journalists there, two have been killed and at least five wounded since the attacks began on 27 December.

The Doha Centre has asked the United Nations and the Red Crescent to help ensure the equipment and supplies reach the journalists.
