Egyptians catch 200 Palestinians crossing Rafah

Egyptian forces on Thursday apprehended 200 Palestinians who crossed over the border from Gaza. During the incident, two Egyptian soldiers were killed by Palestinian ammunition as they attempted to calm the turmoil. Israel Radio reported that PA Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas called Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to express his regret for the death of the two officers. On Wednesday, armed Fatah men took over a bulldozer belonging to the Palestinian Authority and used it to breach a hole along the Egyptian-Palestinian border.
