Palestinian travellers pass an Egyptian soldier standing guard on the Egyptian side of the Rafah border to cross over to Gaza at Rafah city, some 350 km (217 miles) northeast of Cairo August 10, 2012. Egyptian military forces have captured six "terrorists" in the Sinai region after an attack on a police station earlier this week that killed 16 border guards, state television quoted a military source on Friday as saying . Egypt opened the Rafah border on Friday to allow the return of pilgrims from Saudi Arabia and those stranded on their way back to Gaza, the state news agency said, citing a high-ranking official, without outlining how long it would stay open.
