Egypt moves to close Gaza border
(CNN) -- Egypt's security forces began closing off a section of its border with Gaza Sunday, 11 days after Palestinians blasted gaps in the wall, Palestinians at the border told CNN.


Palestinians are seen on a destroyed section of the metal border wall between Gaza and Egypt in Rafah Saturday.

Last month tens of thousands of Gazans overran the border into Egypt, flooding stores to purchase goods that were in short supply as a result of an Israeli blockade. Since then, the flow of Palestinians into Egypt has dropped, and Egyptian and Hamas security forces began sealing parts of the Gaza-Egypt border last week.

Israel closed all border crossings with Gaza on January 17 to punish Hamas leaders for days of rocket attacks on southern Gaza.

Egypt has been under pressure by Israel and the United States to reseal the Rafah border crossing to prevent the flow of terrorists and weapons into Hamas-controlled Gaza.

The border is supposed to be jointly maintained by Egypt and the Palestinian Authority under the oversight of the European Union monitors but was closed after Hamas took over Gaza and split with the Palestinian Authority leadership last year.
