Bodies of aid workers moved out of Gaza

RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) — The bodies of six foreign aid workers killed in Israeli airstrikes have started the journey back to their home countries. They were transported Wednesday out of the Gaza Strip and into Egypt. That’s according to Egyptian state television. The three British citizens, a Polish citizen, an Australian and a Canadian American dual national worked for World Central Kitchen, an international charity. Their Palestinian driver was also killed. They were distributing food that had been brought into Gaza through a newly established maritime corridor late Monday when Israeli airstrikes targeted their three vehicles, killing everyone inside. Israel has acknowledged carrying out the strikes by mistake and says it has launched an independent investigation.
