GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Egyptian authorities have pledged to end a blacklist of
Gaza residents who cannot use the Rafah crossing to leave the coastal strip,
an official in Gaza said on Sunday.

Cabinet secretary-general Abdul Salam Siyam said Egypt also promised to
increase the Rafah's capacity for passengers.

Applauding Egypt's support to Gaza, Siyam noted the significant difference
between the current government and that of ousted Egyptian president Hosni
Mubarak in their position towards Palestine.

Also on Sunday, EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton told
Saudi-newspaper Okaz that Europe was considering returning its border
monitors to the Egypt-Gaza border.

Last month, EU representative John Gatt-Rutter told reporters that the EU
was prepared to redeploy its European Border Assistance Mission at Rafah
crossing, "but that necessitates the approval of all sides."
