Thousands of Palestinians poured out of Gaza and into Egypt early Wednesday after masked gunmen blew dozens of holes in the wall delineating the border, rushing to buy food, fuel and other supplies that have become scarce in Gaza because of an Israeli blockade. Egyptian guards took no action as the Gazans crossed the border. Police from Gaza's ruling Hamas group also stood by.
