RAFAH - About 200 Palestinians marched on Saturday in a Hamas-organised protest in the southern Gaza Strip against neighbouring Egypt's closure of cross-border tunnels. The demonstrators, half of them children, carried banners with slogans calling on Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to "End the Siege of Gaza!" and saying "Do not close the lifeline between Egypt and Gaza," an AFP journalist said. "We call on our Egyptian brothers to stop their campaign against the tunnels which have been dug to allow Palestinians to overcome the blockade imposed by Israel in the Gaza Strip," Mansur Barak, a local leader of the Islamist movement Hamas, which rules the coastal strip, told the crowd.
