Mideast Gaza Troubled Reconstruction

In this Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014 photo, a Palestinian worker checks a truck loaded with aid at the Kerem Shalom border crossing with Israel, while working in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. Trucks delivered consumer goods and farm animals from Israel to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom (Kerem Abu Salem in Arabic) cargo crossing on Tuesday, but the most coveted type of cargo – construction material – has not yet begun to flow freely. Last week, a $2.7 billion plan for Gaza reconstruction was launched with high expectations, but has run into obstacles. (AP Photo/Eyad Baba)
