Egypt closes Rafah crossing to Gaza 'indefinitely'

Egypt has closed indefinitely the Rafah border crossing with Gaza due to the security situation.
Maher Abu Sabha, director of border crossings in Gaza says Egypt told Hamas of the indefinite closure. 

The Egyptian director of the Rafah terminal, Sami al-Mitwali, said the crossing was closed due to security unrest, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported. 

Nilesat an Egyptian company, that controls a series of Egyptian communications satellites, removed Hamas TV al Quds from the air in recent days.

The closure comes after Islamist gunmen staged multiple attacks on security forces in Egypt's troubled Sinai Peninsula early Friday, two days after the army overthrew elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, security sources and state television reported.
 Isn't it amazing what the Egyptian government can do when they want to do it?
