Reunion joy for couple.

RAFAH, Gaza Strip: While other Palestinians lugged food and fuel from Egypt into the Gaza Strip yesterday, Omran Lubbab took advantage of the fall of Rafah wall to bring his future bride home.

"No more delays," said Lubbab, a 34-year-old cameraman, vowing to marry fiancee Heba Al Qadi within two weeks.

Lubbab was reunited with Qadi, a Palestinian who lives on the Egyptian side of the divided town of Rafah, after stepping through one of the gaps in the border wall.

"We have been engaged for two years but our wedding has been delayed because of the closure of the border crossing," said Qadi, who carried two suitcases filled with new dresses to begin her new life.

Qadi will be staying with relatives in Gaza until the wedding.
