Over 700 Egyptians protested Sunday a government plan to evict them from their homes in order to improve security on the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip, police and demonstrators said. Protesters on Sunday were demonstrating against a new plan that would evict residents living within 50 meters of the border. "We would rather face death than eviction," angry protesters chanted as they set tires ablaze in the border town of Rafah. An Egyptian security official in Rafah said local authorities were still considering the eviction plan and that no resident had yet been asked to move out. If the plan is implemented, the evicted families would get "fair" compensation for their lost homes and lands, the official said.
