 The Egyptian authorities were negotiating tens of families living at the border area with Gaza Strip to compensate them and give them alternative houses in Rafah border town to allow the completion of the steel wall along the borders, local residents reported.

Qatari newspaper "Al-Arab" that reported the news said that Cairo paid compensations to locals after it uprooted their trees during the digging.

An Egyptian security source, who requested anonymity, told the paper that the construction work was currently halted in the Salahuddin area until it is evacuated of inhabitants.

Israel has said it was hoping the Egyptian steel wall would be completed by the end of 2010.
