In this Friday, May 17, 2013 photo, Palestinian refugee Ahmed Sameer, 10, poses for a photograph in Gezirat al-Fadel village, Sharqiya, about 93 miles east of Cairo, Egypt. As Palestinians around the world recently marked the 65th anniversary of their mass displacement during the war over Israel's 1948 creation, the refugees in Gezirat al-Fadel say they have it worse than others who fled to Jordan, Syria or Lebanon. Unlike the millions who live in refugee camps in those countries, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) does not have offices in Egypt and so does not offer Palestinian refugees in Egypt assistance.
