Thousands of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip flooded into an Egyptian border town today after militants blew a large hole in the border wall overnight that separates Gaza from Egypt. VOA's Jim Teeple has more details in this report from Jerusalem.

A huge explosion signaled the latest development in the week-old Gaza crisis. Militants blew a large hole in the high metal wall that separates the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip from Egypt and Palestinians crossed into Egypt by the thousands. No attempt was made by Egyptian police to stop the flow of people through the Rafah border crossing point. Hamas police could be seen guilding the crowds through the barrier. Israel eased its blockade of Gaza for one day Tuesday allowing in fuel to power Gaza's main power plant and convoys of food, fuel and medicine to be distributed by international relief agencies. For their part, Israeli officials say the blockade has worked, sending a message to Hamas that there would be consequences for continuing to fire rockets at southern Israel. Israeli officials have said the Gaza border will remian closed to all but humanitarin supplies until the rocket attacks completely stop. Speaking from his exile in Damascus, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal says the rocket attacks will continue despite the Israeli blockade. Jim Teeple, VOA News, Jerusalem.

Investors worldwide had mixed reactions to Tuesday's emergency interest rate cut by the US central bank. Major European stock indexes were down sharply in today's trading with markets in Paris and Frankford off by more than 4 percent. Meanwhile, Asian stocks recouped some of their steep losses of the past 2 days after the market confidence received a shot in the arm from the US Federal Reserve. Share prices soared nearly 11 percent in Hong Kong, and moved up 2 percent or more in Manila, Sydney, Shanghai and Tokyo. VOA's Heda Bayron has more details in this report from Hong Kong.

Most Asian indexes jumped within minutes of opening Wednesday as investors heaved a sigh of relief after 2 days of panic selling. On Tuesday, the US Federal Reserve cut interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point, its biggest cut in more than two decades. However, Ben Kwong, strategist at KGI Capital Asia in Hong Kong, says it is not yet clear if the rate cut will have a long-term impact. 'I think the rate cut by the Fed is a little bit late and the market is expecting more. I think today the rebound is just mainly due to the short covering and not due to genuine buying. I think the investors still have to see whether the market can stabilize at the current level. ' Japan's Nikkei 225 index climbed more than 2 perent Wenesday, after losing more than 9 percent in two days. South Korea's KOSPI rose more than 1 percent while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 surged 4. 4 percent. Heda Bayron, VOA News, Hong Kong.

Russia's foreign minister says a new draft UN resolution on Iran over its disputed nuclear activities does not call for any tough sanctions. Speaking in Mosco today, Sergei Lavrov said the draft was signed by the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany. He welcomed the progress Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency have made to adress all questions about Iran's nuclear program.

Violence has broken out in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi again as former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan tries to mediate the nation's political crisis. Supporters of the opposition democratic, the Orange Democratic Movement rather, clashed with police today as they held a funeral procession to honor dozens of people killed in recent fighting. Witnesses say police fired tear gas after the demonstrators threw stones at them and blocked traffic. Kofi Annan plans to meet with both men today in hopes of forging an agreement that will end the unrest.

Zimbabwe's main opposition leader was briefly detained by police today ahead of a planned protest march. Police seized Morgan Tsvangirai, the leader of the Movement for Democratic Change. It happened during a predawn raid on his home in the capital city of Harare.

The Pakistani military says it's sending reinforcements to the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border to target a rebel commander accused of involvement in the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. A military spokesman says a recent escalation in military, militant attacks rather, made it necessary to reinforce military posts in that tribal area.
