A group of several hundred international activists from an aid convoy to the blockaded Gaza Strip have been allowed to leave Egypt Saturday, despite earlier threats to have some arrested because they scuffled with police, an airport official said. The official said six of the activists, who were wanted by the prosecutor general for their role in violence at El-Arish port where the convoy was delayed, were allowed to leave along with the rest. "A higher political authority ordered that all activists be allowed to depart," said the official without naming the authority. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media.
