Egyptian soldiers (top) keep watch next to the national flag on the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing, while Palestinian children (unseen) take part in a rally on the Palestinian side calling on Egyptian authorities to open the crossing in the southern Gaza Strip on January 29, 2014. Egypt occasionally permits people to enter and leave Gaza, but has refused to open on a permanent basis the only border crossing in the Hamas-run Palestinian coastal strip not controlled by Israel.
