Hamas hands over Egypt border crossing to Palestinian Authority

Hamas handed over control of the Gaza Strip’s border with Egypt to the Palestinian Authority on Wednesday in a first key test of a Palestinian reconciliation accord agreed last month, an AFP journalist said.

Nazmi Muhanna, the Palestinian Authority’s top official for border crossings, and his Hamas counterpart signed an agreement that will see the internationally recognized authority take control of the border with Egypt.
