BBC NEWS | Middle East | Hamas blows hole in Gaza border: "Hamas militants have destroyed a section of a concrete barrier erected along the Gaza-Egypt border.
Palestinian and Egyptian troops have been trying to shore up the barrier to stop Palestinians crossing into Egypt after the withdrawal of Israeli troops.
In chaotic scenes, thousands of Palestinians have streamed over the border in the last few days without undergoing official checks.
Despite this, Egypt says that its Gaza border is officially closed.
Militants from Hamas cleared an area before setting off explosives that blew away a section of the wall. Palestinian security officers present did nothing to prevent them.
A local Hamas commander warned them not to try to intervene, the AFP news agency reported."
