Egyptian without a passport swam home from Palestine

Published 26/08/2007

An Egyptian man stranded in Gaza has managed to swim home.

Mohamed Awda got stuck after entering the Palestinian territory two years ago.

He didn't have any identity documents so couldn't leave.

He swam along the Mediterranean coast at night to get back to Egypt.
