GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — An aid convoy arrived in the Gaza Strip overland from Egypt to a warm welcome from the territory's Islamic militant Hamas rulers.

The convoy was organized by 'Viva Palestina,' headed by former British member of parliament George Galloway.

Hamas official Ahmed Youssef says the aid is worth about $5 million and includes 137 used vehicles for ambulances and transport.
