Occupied Palestinian Territory, 2009: A bird flies over the remains of a building in Gaza City. It is now one year since the Israeli 22-day military incursion into the Gaza Strip that began on 27 December 2008. More than 1,300 Gazans, including 430 children, died in the conflict. Eighty per cent of the population remains dependent upon food assistance.
