An international aid convoy will be allowed to enter the Gaza Strip after organizers struck a deal with Egyptian authorities over its transit route. Egypt's state-owned Middle East News Agency reported that a ship carrying the 150-vehicle convoy with hundreds of tons of humanitarian supplies will be unloaded at the Egyptian port of El-Arish after arriving Sunday. The report said that the British-based group Viva Palestina is accompanied by 528 activists from 17 countries who will also travel to Gaza. Egypt had refused to allow the group in through the Red Sea, insisting it use a Mediterranean route closer to the Gaza border. The group hopes to join Palestinians in a march to the Israeli border Thursday.
