Egypt delays opening of border crossing with Gaza following terrorist attack on mosque

Egyptian authorities have delayed the opening of the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip, citing security concerns, Reuters reports. The move followed a terrorist attack targeting a mosque in northern Sinai that claimed the lives of at least 235 people. The border was scheduled to re-open for three days to facilitate travel from both sides.
