Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside...

Hot on the heels of a CNN report that said the Tripoli refugee camp in the Lebanon was "hosting" the fighting between al-qaeda inspired militants and government troops (see blogs passim), the BBC is today describing the Gaza Strip as a "densely populated seaside territory".

Now, I'm not disputing the fact that Gaza is on the coast, but "seaside" is maybe a little insensitive in the current climate. I fear there are more rocket-propelled grenades on the beach than kiss-me-quick hats.
