Heated arguments have erupted as authorities attempt to send home some 500 international activists who were part of an aid convoy to the blockaded Gaza Strip, a Cairo airport security official said today.The official said many activists could not pay for their (probably extortionate) plane tickets and the Foreign Ministry was asking their respective embassies to foot the bill.

Meanwhile Egyptian authorities have announced that all aid convoys travelling to Gaza will be banned from traveling across Egypt
