In Egypt, the Health Ministry released revised numbers of protesters killed since January 25th. Officials say at least 365 civilians died and an estimated 5500 were injured. Also today, the ruling Military Council urged people to go back to work, in an effort to stop a wave of labor strikes that began over the weekend. Another unresolved issue is Egypt’s border with the Gaza Strip. During the uprising, the Rafah border crossing connecting Egypt to Gaza was closed. Because of that, even now, hundreds of Palestinians are still stranded in Egypt, and others inside Gaza can't cross the border. Some of those affected are Palestinians in need of medical care. FSRN's Rami Almeghari has more.
