Activists threatened at Rafah crossing

July 8, 2009

Natalie Abou Shakra of ISM Gaza and Jenny Linnell have told me by email of the threats and intimidation they experienced whilst attempting to cross the border at Rafah. See my previous post ‘Natalie’s Testimony at the Gates of Hell’.  The two women have now turned to the British Embassy at Cairo with a letter which raises questions about why they received such treatment, when (as described in the letter) they believe they had permission to cross and passage should have been assured. Their letter has been published here.
