Gaza man donates to families of slain Egyptians
A Gaza merchant has promised to donate $10,000 each to the families of 16 Egyptian soldiers killed in an attack by suspected Islamic militants at a border post in Sinai.
Egypt sealed its border with Hamas-ruled Gaza after the weekend attack, alleging that the assailants had help from the Palestinian territory. The attack also strained ties between Egypt' president and Gaza's Hamas rulers, both members of the region-wide Muslim Brotherhood.
Hamas has denied anyone from Gaza was involved in Sunday's shooting, but pledged to cooperate with Egypt's investigation in hopes of limiting the political fallout. The assailants are believed to be Egypt-based, with al-Qaida ties.
