Explosions blow hole in Gaza-Egypt border wall

Two explosions early Wednesday caused a large hole in the Gaza-Egypt border wall, witnesses reported, sending people rushing to the open crossing but causing no injuries. Hamas gunmen rushed to the scene to prevent Gazans from fleeing to Egypt and there were no immediate crossings reported. Several groups had issued threats in recent days about attacking the wall. Hamas confirmed two explosions took place but denied any hole was created in the wall between Gaza and Egypt.
