An Egyptian soldier stands on a tower in the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing in the southern Gaza Strip as seen from the Palestinian side, on October 26, 2014. The decision was taken to close the Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip, the only route into the Palestinian territory not controlled by Israel, as Egypt declared a three-month state of emergency in the north and centre of the Sinai Peninsula after a suicide car bombing killed 30 soldiers.
