Gaza, Palestine - Renegade members of the militant al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades commandeered a bulldozer and destroyed a section of a wall separating Palestine from Egypt.

Egyptian police fired warning shots into the air and captured about 100 Palestinians. Some of those who managed to evade capture returned later in the day with discounted merchandise. Video
