Gheit repeats that Egypt will 'break legs' of Palestinian infiltrators

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit reiterated on Monday his statement that Egypt would "break the legs" of any Palestinian attempting to infiltrate Egypt through the breached Rafah border. Gheit was quoted by the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper as saying that Egypt wouldn't allow the Palestinians to "be starved," but would not permit anyone to violate Egypt's sovereignty.
