Man dies in Gaza crossing chaos: bbc reports | March 8, 2007

“An elderly Palestinian died and several people were injured when police lost control of a crowd on the Gaza side of the Rafah border crossing with
Egypt.”

(extract copied here from the above site, please read the whole article for yourself, no bias intended, but were are after all human.)

At least three people were shot as police opened fire to drive back crowds pushing towards the crossing. It was not immediately clear if the man was crushed or had a heart attack. Israel has allowed the crossing, Gaza’s only route to the world bypassing Israel, to be open only intermittently since it withdrew from
Gaza in 2005.
The irregular opening of the crossing – the only way for most Gazans to leave the Strip – means that large crowds usually arrive at the crossing when there is a chance it may open. “
