About two thirds of the metal wall along the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip at the town of Rafah was destroyed in explosions overnight. Gunmen had set off seventeen explosions overnight to blow holes in the wall on the sixth day of an Israeli blockade of the Palestinian territory. Tens of thousands of Palestinians flooded across to buy food, cigarettes and fuel.
