Shimon Peres On Gaza: It's Mubarak's Problem
Israeli President Shimon Peres spoke to CNN in Davos. I asked him if the Israeli governement had spoken with Hosni Mubarak, asking the Egyptians to seal the border back up.
Update: CNN's Aneesh Raman just gave me an update on the situation close to the Gaza-Egypt border. He tells me that the scene in the nearby village of El-Arish is what can be best described as a "chaos of buying" and that some Gazans are on their third trip into Egypt to stock up on supplies.
