Gaza rockets land in Egypt

Rockets fired from Gaza early Sunday landed across the border in Egypt but caused no casualties, state television reported.

"Several rockets from the Gaza Strip landed this morning in Egyptian territory in the region west of the Rafah terminal, without causing casualties," the television reported.

A security official confirmed that rockets had landed in Egypt, but said they could have been fired by mistake.
