APTOPIX Mideast Palestinians Charcoal
In this Wednesday March 27, 2013 photo, Palestinian worker Hamuda Mahdi, who oversees production of coal at night, poses for a photograph at one of the few local charcoal manufacturing shops, east of Gaza City. In adapting to years of border blockades and shortages, Gazans have become experts at recycling and making new out of old including turning scrap wood into charcoal to be used for barbecue grills and water pipes in local restaurants and coffee houses.
