Photo Essay: Gaza's Samouni Street

BBC News, Undated, 2009 -

Notorious incident

Samouni Street is the scene of one of the most notorious incidents in the recent conflict in Gaza.

Palestinian human rights workers say 29 members of the extended Samouni family died, virtually all in an Israeli tank or air strike on a house where about 100 people were gathered.

The corpses and dead animals have been removed, but six weeks after the ceasefires, those left living are only beginning to grasp the extent of their losses.

BBC News visits the area where the Samouni clan used to live to survey the destruction and speak with some of the surviving family members. Photo essay (12 photos) at the link.
