On Hold In Gaza

For almost two weeks, Israel has been bombing the Gaza Strip. Now tanks have entered the territory. Iyas Salim, like many Gazans, has been holed up in a high-rise apartment with extended family. During yesterday's brief cease fire, he emerged for the first time in days, he and his wife squinting in the sunlight. Iyas talks with Dick Gordon about how he and his family keep the kids safe and entertained while the bombs fall, and how he answers their questions about why all of this is happening to them.
