Mideast Palestinians Road To Reconstruction

In this Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014 photo, Palestinian Madi Hasanein, sits next to his son while he swings in what is left of their house in Tofah neighborhood of Gaza City. More than five weeks after the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip, tens of thousands of people whose homes were destroyed or badly damaged in the fighting still live in classrooms, storefronts and other crowded shelters. Yet despite their pressing needs, reconstruction efforts appear stymied by a continued Israeli-Egyptian border blockade of Gaza and an unresolved power struggle between the Islamic militant group Hamas and Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
