The leader of Lebanon's Hizbullah terrorist group on Sunday accused Egypt of "choking off an entire people" by building an underground barrier meant to stop smuggling goods and weapons to Gaza.
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said that Egypt should be condemned by all Arabs if it continues installing the barrier. Egypt is under fire from Arab and Muslim groups for cooperating with Israel in its blockade of Gaza.
The barrier would tighten the blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip after the terrorist group Hamas seized control of the territory in 2007.
Nasrallah spoke Sunday by satellite to supporters at a rally marking Ashoura, Shi'ite Islam's most important religious holiday.
