Nobody hurt fortunately. Must be one tough place to work.

Quote:
Armed men have raided a privately-run American school in the north of the Gaza Strip, setting fire to buses and stealing computer equipment.

It was the second attack on the school, in Beit Lahiya, in the past two days. On Thursday a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the building.

Hamas, the group that controls the Gaza Strip, has condemned the attack.

Correspondents say it may have been linked to US President George W Bush's visit to the Middle East.

Your extract didn't make clear that the attacks were made at night and the only person there was an unarmed guard who was locked in a room unharmed. The whole faculty and staff are Palestinian, but the curriculum is American based... so the attack was certainly a political statement.

I have had friends who have taught in Gaza over the years and it has never been an easy gig.
