Egypt says it will double the width of a buffer zone being constructed along the border with the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade for the past seven years.
Egyptian authorities will next week double the width of a 500-meter (546-yard) wide buffer zone currently under construction along some 10 kilometers (six miles) of the border, North Sinai provincial Governor Abdel Fattah Harhur said on Tuesday.
Some 800 homes will be demolished in the process
