The 12-year-old Palestinian girl whose family was killed June 9 in explosion on a Gaza beach has arrived in the United Arab Emirates, where the deputy prime minister is seeking to adopt her, local media reported Thursday. Huda Ghalia, who was the only survivor among nine family members with her that day, is undergoing psychological treatment at Sheik Zayed Military Hospital for emotional and cognitive damage, the Dubai-based English-speaking newspaper Gulf News said. Israel denied that its ordnance exploded on the beach, but human rights groups have displayed what they say are fragments of a 155 mm Israeli artillery shell that killed eight of Ghalia's family members and wounded other bystanders.
