Stranded travelers storm Gaza crossing

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Stranded travelers tried to storm through the gates of Gaza's Rafah crossing on the Egyptian border on Sunday to protest delays at the terminal.

Travelers including students denounced Egypt's closure of the crossing and demanded that they be allowed to travel in order to reach their destinations throughout the world.

The Gaza ministry of interior said around 5,000 people were stranded on the Palestinian side.

Egyptian authorities partially reopened the Rafah crossing on Sunday for the second day in a row to allow humanitarian cases to cross. Some 370 people managed to cross. more
