Asphalt: Kids are doing parkour in a Gaza Strip cemetery

Making a dangerous place even that more dangerous

On the short list of places where you would not expect people to be doing parkour, the Gaza Strip is up there. But Asphalt creator René Sascha Johannsen travelled to the Middle East and found a group of kids who go to great risks to practice free running. For these kids, parkour represents a way for them to express themselves. But not everyone is happy about that. Members of the group have been beaten by the police for doing parkour, and they practice in a cemetery because it's the one place they can go unnoticed (and thereby unhasseled). So the next time you complain that a curb isn't waxed or a wave is closing out, just remember how far these kids are going to practice parkour.
