It's six months since Israel pulled its tanks out of Gaza, at the end of a three week offensive against Hamas.

During the fighting, four-year-old Samar was shot and paralysed, allegedly by Israeli soldiers.

After emergency surgery in Egypt, she was flown to Belgium where she has been receiving specialist treatment.

Soon though, she will have to return home.

Christian Fraser reports.
