Angry Beduin on Wednesday hurled stones, destroyed a police checkpoint and set a police truck on fire in the third day of unrest near Egypt's border with Gaza, police and eyewitnesses said. The violence was sparked by an Egyptian plan to demolish houses along the country's porous boundary with the Gaza Strip in an effort to curb rampant smuggling here. The government - according to Egyptian media reports - is planning to evict the Bedouin population from a 150 meter strip of land along the border, to prevent traffickers from digging tunnels to smuggle weapons and people into Gaza.
