US supports Egyptian underground barrier on Gaza border

The US formally announced its support for the construction of a steel underground barrier on the border between Egypt and Gaza, saying it would prevent weapons smuggling.


"We believe that the smuggling of weapons must stop and that measures to put an end to this can be taken," said Gordon Duguid, a spokesman for the State Department. He added that "we also support greater access to Gaza for humanitarian supplies". (AFP)
