UNRWA on quest for half a billion in funding at Rome conference

Palestinian Hamas supporters protest against the decision by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency to suspended an aid program for Gaza residents displaced by the last summer's war, in Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza Strip, Friday, Jan. 30, 2015. The UNWRA said it suspended the program because of a large shortfall in funds from donor countries. Arabic on poster reads "It's time to break the siege, we want to live with dignity, enough siege."
