Egypt opens Rafah crossing

Rafah Border Crossing

"New York - Egypt opened the Rafah crossing point with the Gaza Strip on Tuesday following a wave of international outcry at an Israeli-led blockade of the Palestinian territory, officials in Egypt and Gaza told Reuters.

The Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that the move was an order from Egypt's president, Hosni Mubarak.

The move follows an Israeli military raid on Monday on an international convoy of ships carrying aid to Gaza that left at least nine people dead.

The Rafah crossing is Gaza's only crossing point not fully controlled by Israel. Egypt has only opened the crossing sporadically since 2007 when Israel imposed a sweeping blockade on Gaza following Hamas' takeover of the territory. Egypt is at odds with Hamas, which is allied with the Egyptian opposition, the Muslim Brotherhood."
