Gisha: US Consulate tells Gaza students it's working to get them out

A human rights group says the US Consulate in Jerusalem is working to get seven Gaza students out of the blockaded territory to pursue their Fulbright scholarship studies. The group, called Gisha, gave The Associated Press a copy of a message sent to all seven students by the consulate on Sunday. It says US officials are working to get exit permits for the seven, bring them to east Jerusalem and get them visas for the US. Then they could continue their studies. Over the weekend there was news that the scholarships would be canceled because the students couldn't get out of Gaza.
