Thousands of Gazans protest Israel blockade

About 5,000 Gazans are assembling several hundred yards from the Erez crossing with Israel. Another 2,000 are rallying at the Rafah crossing with Egypt.

The participants in Friday's march are carrying Hamas flags.

The Gaza Strip has been virtually sealed by Israel and Egypt since last June.

Hamas is trying to negotiate a new arrangement for the border crossings with Israel and Egypt.
