Egyptian FM threatens to break Palestinians’ legs if they breach border again – International Herald Tribune

CAIRO, Egypt: Egypt’s foreign minister said that no further violations of its borders would be tolerated in the wake of a 12-day breach of its frontier with Gaza and said anyone daring to cross would have their legs broken, the state news agency reported.

“Anyone who violates Egypt’s borders will get his leg broken,” Aboul Gheit was quoted as saying. He added that Egypt only allowed the Palestinians to cross the border after Hamas blew up the wall because of fears over the humanitarian situation resulting from Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip.
