Apartheid wall

"It has been called a 'wall', a 'security fence' and an 'obstacle' to terrorists. When it is finished it will run 450 miles and will have cost Israel around $4bn.

For some it means security, for others it is a means of undoing their future.

Four years ago this week the international court of justice said Israel's West Bank barrier was illegal where it crossed into Palestinian territory.

We explore the lives of the people on either side of the barrier and examine its implications for a settlement in the Middle East's most intractable conflict."

The Guardian has a special section on the apartheid wall. I really like their correspondent Rory McCarthy. One of his recent articles was picked up by Fateh's electronic voice. Sloppy as ever, they managed a typo in the title.
