Block­ade bid fails

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

EGYPT de­clared the block­ade of Gaza a fail­ure yes­ter­day and promised to keep its border with the Pales­tinian ter­ri­tory open in­def­i­nitely. That would ease the clam­p­down im­posed by Is­rael three years ago to iso­late and pun­ish Gaza’s Ha­mas rulers. It would also re­store a link to the out­side the world for some of Gaza’s 1.5 mil­lion pop­u­la­tion. Egypt opened its border with Gaza soon af­ter Is­rael’s deadly raid on the in­ter­na­tional flotilla of ac­tivists last week.
