Gaza children 'break' kite flying record

Thousands of children in Gaza appear to have broken their own world record for the number of kites flown at the same time, the United Nations says.

More than 6,200 children taking part in a summer programme organised by the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) gathered on a beach to fly a kite each.

Organisers say the feat has brightened the lives of not just the children, but the entire population.
