Egyptian police, army hold sit-in

Egyptian police and army soldiers enraged by the kidnapping of seven of their colleagues by Islamist gunmen in the Sinai Peninsula held a sit-in at the Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip on Sunday (May 19). Police have been blocking the Rafah crossing since Friday (May 17) in a bid to pressure the Cairo government to help free the men, security sources said. Police also blocked a commercial border crossing with Israel on Sunday. Gunmen demanding the release of jailed Islamist militants seized the policemen and soldiers on the road between the Sinai towns of el-Arish and Rafah on Thursday (May 16).
