Palestinians perform Friday prayers at the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and southern Gaza Strip January 16, 2015, to demand that Egyptian authorities open the crossing. Egypt shut Rafah crossing, Gaza's main window to the outside world, over violence with Islamist militants in Egypt's adjacent Sinai region last October. Since then, it opened the crossing for a few days to allow thousands of Palestinians get in and out of Gaza Strip. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
