In this Friday, May 17, 2013 photo, Egyptian security forces chant in protest of the abduction of four colleagues at the country's main crossing point into the Gaza Strip in Rafah, Egypt. Dozens of disgruntled border policemen forced the closure of the Rafah border between Egypt and Gaza on Friday to protest the abduction of four border policemen working at the Rafah crossing, a riot policeman, and a military border guard by suspected militants, underscoring the country's lawlessness and its crisis of authority two years since the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. At Rafah terminal, one of the protesting policemen said that they will keep it closed until their colleagues are freed. (AP Photo)
