Egyptian President Mohamad Morsy announced a three-day period of mourning for those killed during Sunday night's attack at an Egyptian border post, Egyptian daily Al-Ahram reported.

Morsy, along with Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, will attend the funerals of the 16 soldiers who died in the attack.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Egyptian residents of Rafah blocked the roads leading to Gaza, preventing trucks from transferring goods to the Strip via a tunnel network.
