Authorities said a pair of newborn lion cubs unveiled by Hamas as prized additions to the zoo in the Gaza Strip have died. Mohammad Abdel-Rahman, the acting manager of the Beit Lahiya zoo in northern Gaza, said Thursday the cubs died of an unspecified illness. He said the zoo’s staff was unable to save them because they lacked experience in caring for newborn cubs. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa, File)
