Egyptians Marching to Gaza Border

Hundreds of Egyptians are marching to the country's border with the Gaza Strip to demand that it be opened. They are currently in Al Arish, about 50 kilometers from Rafah.

Press TV correspondent Roshan Muhammed Salih is also in Al Arish, where he spoke to several of the Egyptian activists, who told him they plan to hold a demonstration on the border on Sunday, with the aim of entering the besieged territory.

Egypt has imposed a blockade on Gaza since the democratically elected Hamas government took control of the territory in 2007. Gaza is also blockaded by Israel -- a situation that international agencies and non-governmental groups say has led to a humanitarian crisis.'
