The world is finally getting a glimpse of the massacre in the Jenin refugee camp. The few journalists who have seen the camp say there are piles of rubble where homes once stood, and gaping holes ripped in the sides of buildings. There is water flooding out of broken mains and running down the rubble-strewn streets.

The Israeli army said several hundred Palestinians have likely been killed, but later retracted the claim. The Palestinians are asking the United Nations for an international inquiry. Kristen Schurr is one of several International Solidarity Movement activists who have gone to the villages to hear the stories first hand, in the hope of offering some humanitarian aid. She filed this report last night.

Guest:

  • Kristen Schurr, activist with the International Solidarity Movement, reporting from a village outside Jenin.
