The plight of children living in the Gaza strip in the occupied Palestinian territory, has been highlighted by the campaigner and rock star, Bob Geldof.  

Geldof visited the Jabalya refugee camp and a school run by the UN's Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Northern Gaza.

He was on his way to attend an Israeli conference on Africa in Tel-Aviv when he received an invitation to visit Gaza.

"I am going to Ben-Gurion University to talk to the students and I came for an African conference in Tel-Aviv. So I came to the conference because I knew Africa, but then I got invited to these things and I wanted to come. The students… wonderful! Like everywhere. That's the hope, that's the future."
