Gaza chaos continues as Palestinians storm Egypt

"Hundreds of Palestinians streamed into Egypt yesterday after militants with stolen bulldozers broke through a border wall in the most brazen challenge to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' authority.
Thousands of Egyptian Interior Ministry troops swarmed the border, firing tear gas and shooting into the air. An Egyptian armored vehicle was set ablaze, and a witness said three Palestinians were injured -- one seriously, when a troop carrier crushed him against a wall.
Police imposed a curfew on the Egyptian side, all shops were closed, and authorities cut electricity, plunging the scene in near total darkness. Hundreds of Palestinians hid in nearby farmland. "

How can Egypt be so "heavy-handed", wonder if we'll hear the UN pontificate about Egypt's "heavy-hand".
