GAZA - Hamas stopped travelers from crossing into Egypt on Sunday in a row with Egyptian authorities over restrictions at the Rafah border.

Egypt eased border access last weekend to much fanfare, extending opening hours at the frontier and scrapping visa requirements for many Palestinians.

However, some Hamas officials say that Egypt appears to have had second thoughts and has since tried to slow the flow of Palestinians looking to leave the tiny coastal enclave.
