Egypt stops building steel wall along Gaza

CAIRO, April 11 (UPI) -- Egypt halted construction of an underground steel wall designed to stop weapons smuggling along its border with Gaza, Israeli defense officials said.

Construction of the 6.2-mile barrier was suspended after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in February, officials told The Jerusalem Post

Israel has told the new Egyptian government it should uphold the position of the previous government in preventing the flow of arms into the Gaza Strip, the newspaper reported.
