Gaza donkeys face competition from imported tuktuks

In Gaza donkeys have been used as an essential form of transport for decades, but they are facing competition from cheap vehicles smuggled into the territory.

The Chinese tuktuk-style vehicles are being brought in through smugglers' tunnels from Egypt, and while they cost up to five times more than a donkey they are faster and more reliable.
