Egypt 'aids in breaking Gaza siege'

Egyptians say Ouja crossing with Israel cuts time to deliver aid to besieged Gazans.

    Egypt has often been accused of being a silent partner with Israel in its siege of Gaza by refusing to let goods and people through the Rafah border crossing, between Egypt and Gaza, since the Strip was taken over by Hamas.

    However, it is an accusation the country rejects.

    Al Jazeera has been given rare access to the Ouja commercial crossing between Egypt and Israel, which Egyptian officials say is a fast track for humanitarian aid into Gaza.

    Al Jazeera's Amr El-Kahky reports from the crossing.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
