JERUSALEM (AP) -- Jerusalem-Israel decides to ease the Gaza blockade, allowing some food items through for the first time in almost four years.

This, after a deadly clash a little more than a week ago.

Israeli commandos killed nine people during a raid on a flotilla of activists hoping to break the blockade.

President Obama and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas are set to discuss Isreal's blockade of gaza on Wednesday.
