EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton Saturday called for Gaza's borders to be opened beyond Israel's limited easing of its 3-year-old blockade of the Palestinian territory.

"There needs to be an opening of the crossings to allow the flow of people and goods in both directions," she told a news conference in the West Bank.

Ashton was expected to tour Gaza on Sunday.
