Dead men posters selling well
A Palestinian man enters the Nibras Print Shop beside a poster showing Hamas militants that were killed in Israel's recent Gaza military offensive in Gaza City, Monday, Jan. 26, 2009. The shop prints customized, full-color posters and banners commemorating the dead — a Palestinian tradition for people killed by Israel. In the wake of Israel's 22-day Gaza offensive, which killed nearly 1,300 Palestinians, the shop is one of Gaza's few businesses experiencing a postwar boom.
