Palestinian boys walk past a segment of what used to be a border fence between Egypt and the Gaza Strip near Rafah on April 30, 2011, a day after Egypt said it will permanently open the Rafah border crossing as part of its plans to ease the blockade on Gaza while an Egyptian border guard was killed in an exchange of gunfire with Palestinian tunnel smugglers.
