More than a thousand international protesters, including 16 South Africans led by Judge Siraj Desai, have converged on Cairo.

They hope to participate in the Gaza Freedom March, despite the Egyptian government announcing that it would refuse them entry.

The protestors planned to march with Palestinians to the Erez crossing, the closed border between Israel and Gaza to protest against what they regard as the Israeli siege of Gaza.

Media reports that some of the protestors have already bore the wrath of the Egyptian police.
