RAFAH, Palestinian Territories: Egypt has decided to reopen the Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip, which was closed in the face of protests that ousted president Hosni Mubarak, a Hamas official said on Sunday. "The crossing will reopen from Tuesday for 300 passengers a day," said Ghazi Hammad, head of the borders department in the Islamist movement's administration in the territory. The Rafah crossing, the only one into Gaza that is not controlled by Israel, has been closed since January 30, amid mass protests against Mubarak, who was forced from office on February 11. Thousands of Palestinians, including patients seeking medical treatment and students, have been trapped in Egypt since the crossing was closed.
