Palestinians hoping to cross into Egypt wait at the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip March 31, 2014. Egyptian authorities partially reopened Rafah border crossing, Gaza's main window to the world, on Saturday for three days after 50 days of its closure, Palestinian border officials said. Since the overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013, the authorities have largely kept the crossing closed, only opening it partially for limited periods of time, on humanitarian grounds.
