Facts on the ground

South Africa's Mail & Guardian has produced one of the better reports on events in Gaza.

"What seemed on Wednesday to be a huge, but perhaps brief, phenomenon dampened by the attempt by Egyptian riot police who moved later in the week to try to reseal the border, by this weekend was taking on the impression of a seismic and unstoppable reordering of the facts of the Middle East."

Meanwhile Egypt midfielder Mohamed Aboutrika (picture above) lifted his strip to reveal a T-shirt with the slogan 'Sympathy with Gaza' as he celebrated scoring in the 3-0 win over Sudan. Aboutrika has given a warning by the Confederation of African Football after displaying a slogan at the Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana.

Nice one—ya basha!
