Egypt on Friday deported dozens of female pro-Palestinian activists who had hoped to travel across the border to the Gaza Strip to celebrate International Women's Day there.

The women, numbering around 100 in total and mostly from the Europe and the US, had flown to Cairo with the intention of entering the Gaza Strip through Egypt’s Rafah border crossing.

However, they were unable to make it any further than Cairo International Airport after Egypt denied them entry to the county. After staging a sit-in at the airport, the activists were sent back to their home countries by the Egyptian authoritities.
