Egyptian police protest at Gaza border

Chanting anti-government slogans, Egyptian police and army soldiers hold a sit-in at the Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip. The men are enraged by the kidnapping of seven of their colleagues by Islamist gunmen in the Sinai Peninsula on Thursday. They've blocked the border crossing since Friday to pressure Cairo to help free the men. Police also blocked a commercial border crossing with Israel on Sunday. Those protesting in Rafah say they will not leave until their colleagues are safely returned. A video that appeared online on Sunday showed seven blindfolded men, who said they were the hostages, begging President Mohamed Mursi to free political detainees in Sinai in exchange for their own release. The government said it was not engaging in talks with the kidnappers. But the army has mobilised several units of troops in North Sinai.
