A Palestinian boy waits with his family hoping to cross into Egypt, at the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip January 8, 2014. Egyptian authorities partially opened the Rafah crossing, Gaza's main window to the world, on Wednesday for two days, border officials said. Since July 2013, the authorities have kept the crossing largely closed; only opening it partially for humanitarian purposes. Photo by Eyad Al Baba
