Egypt opens Gaza border after Israel ship clash

Gaza, June 1, 2010

Egypt opened its border with the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, letting Palestinians cross until further notice amid a storm of international criticism of Israel's blockade of the enclave, officials in Egypt and Gaza said.

Egypt's Rafah crossing point is the only border post from Gaza that is not fully controlled by Israel.

Cairo has opened it only sparingly since Hamas Islamists, who are allied to Egypt's opposition, seized control in Gaza three years ago.-Reuters
