People celebrated in the Gaza Strip after the U.N. approved a diplomatic upgrade for Palestine — making it an observer state. Here’s Sky News.

“ … more than two-thirds of the General Assembly backed the resolution despite opposition from the U.S. and Israel. Now as those results were announced, thousands of people filled the streets of Ramallah in the West Bank to celebrate.”

Protests are breaking out in Egypt over more than 200 laws passed this morning. HLN has more.

“But the people still need to approve it. Opponents gathered in Tahrir Square last night. They claim this new constitution was thrown together too fast and that it was pushed through by the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The communication breakdown continues in Syria. The BBC reports.

“Syria has suffered its biggest communication blackout since the uprising against President Assad began 20 months ago. Internet and mobile phone services are down in the capital Damascus and parts of central Syria.”

The Museum of Modern Art in New York — or MoMA — is adding a video-games exhibit. WABC explains.

“Pac-Man, Tetris, Sim City. … These are just some of the 14 games that will go on display in March. … Curators are still working out all the details. Eventually, MoMA plans to have 40 games as part of its architecture and design collection.”
