Egypt has agreed to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's plan to assume control of Gaza's crossing with Egypt, excluding Hamas Islamists who rule the territory, Palestinian and Egyptian officials said on Sunday.
The Gaza Strip's Hamas rulers rejected the agreement and said it was holding its own talks with Cairo.
"We have our own vision of how the crossing will be run and we will present our vision to our Egyptian brothers," Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri told Reuters. (Reuters)
