Ahmad A. Talib of Pahit Manis crossed into Gaza an hour or so ago, perhaps the first Malaysian blogger to do so. He is part of a humanitarian mission, led by Yayasan Salam in which he is a member, to help in the rebuilding of Gaza. The mission includes a journalist from NST. The Star journalist Shahanaz Habib has been there since last week. Ahmad led a group of journalists into Iraq during the US invasion; Shahanaz, of course, was our first journalist that got into Baghdad then.
Ahmad A. Talib conveys salams to my readers and sent me these pictures minutes ago.
