From the wire services:

Palestinians gather after a cesspool embankment collapsed in the village of Umm Naser, in the northern Gaza Strip, Tuesday, March 27, 2007. An earth embankment around a cesspool suddenly collapsed Tuesday, spewing a river of sewage and mud that killed four people and forced residents to flee from this village in the northern Gaza Strip, officials said. A local official blamed shoddy infrastructure in Umm Naser, a town of 3,000, for the disaster.

There were reports of Gaza’s decade-old sewage problems growing dangerously worse almost a month ago. But apparently nothing has been done about it.

The Palestinians have their priorities.
