Official: Journalist delegation to Gaza delayed by Egypt

Sept. 5, 2014 6:28 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 5, 2014 6:28 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A trip by the International Federation of Journalists and the Federation of Arab Journalists to Gaza has been delayed "for logistical reasons," deputy head of the Palestinian Journalists Union said.

Tahsin al-Astal told Ma'an that the visit has been delayed for logistical reasons on the Egyptian side even though the federation has finished all preparations for the visit.

Sharif al-Nairab, member of the General Secretariat of the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, said that the group was "well-prepared despite the time constraints and we eliminated all obstacles, especially taking into account that the delegation includes an international fact-finding committee."

Al-Astal said that a fact-finding committee from the International Federation of Journalists will escort the delegation and not an international committee.
