Breaking News: Mubarak opens the Rafah crossing

According to Le Monde Mubarak has just ordered the opening of the Rafah crossing into Gaza.

Ynet and al-Jazeera confirm. Ynet adds:

It remains unclear whether the move has to do with the failed aid flotilla to Gaza, because the crossing opens once a month for a few days. Palestinian and Arab officials are pressuring Cairo to keep the crossing open indefinitely.
