Egypt has begun demolishing homes along its border with the Gaza Strip as part of a planned 500 meter buffer zone that is intended to prevent weapons smuggling.

Residents living along the border with the Palestinian territory have been given 48 hours - and promised compensation - to leave their homes.

The buffer will include water-filled trenches to prevent tunnelling.

Egyptian media accuses Gaza's Hamas administration of aiding militants in Sinai.

Last week, more than 30 Egyptian soldiers were killed in a militant bomb attack on an army post in Sinai.
