Sinai's Rafah Crossing will reopen on Saturday to those entering or leaving Egypt, a source at the crossing said.

The crossing was closed on Monday after 25 soldiers were killed.

Rafah Crossing will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the source told the Middle East News Agency.

Last Monday, 25 Egyptian soldiers were killed after armed assailants forced the soldiers to get off a bus they were on and shot them dead.
