  • Description

    WORK HAS ALREADY STARTED ON A NEW SCHOOL TO REPLACE THE OLD ONE DESTROYED BY ISRAELI BOMBERS FIVE DAYS AGO. EGYPTIAN OFFICIALS SAY THAT THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN KILLED IN THIS RAID HAS NOW RISEN TOP 46. IN ADDITION TO THE 30 KILLED OUTRIGHT IN THE RAID, ANOTHER 16 HAVE SINCE DIED FROM THEIR WOUNDS.

    A GROUP OF JOURNALISTS WHO WERE BROUGHT TO THE SCENE OF THE RAID FAILED TO SEE ANY TRACE OF THE MILITARY EQUIPMENT WHICH THE ISRAEL GOVERNMENT SAYS WERE KEPT NEAR THE BUILDING. THE ISRAELIS HAD PRODUCED PHOTOGRAPHS SHOWING THE SITE WAS A MILITARY TARGET WITH MILITARY VEHICLES, TRENCHES AND DEFENSIVE WORKS ROUND THE BUILDINGS. LATER PICTURES CLAIM TO SHOW THE EGYPTIANS WERE REMOVING ALL TRACES OF ALL MILITARY EQUIPMENT AND INSTALLATIONS BEFORE ALLOWING JOURNALISTS TO VISIT THE SPOT.

    CORRESPONDENTS VISITING THE SITE OF LAST WEEK'S ATTACK SAW THE ALMOST FLATTENED REMAINS OF A SINGLE-STOREY BUILDING, WITH CHILDREN'S BOOKS AND SHOES AMIDST THE RUBBLE.

    NEARBY WAS A U-SHAPED BUILDING WHICH OFFICIALS SAID WAS THE WORKSHOP FOR AN AGRICULTURAL PROJECT. BOMB CRATERS LITTERED THE WHOLE AREA. OFFICIALS SAID THE SCHOOL WAS PART OF A GROUP OF BUILDINGS PUT UP AS HEADQUARTERS FOR A MAJOR LAND RECLAMATION PROJECT.
