6 a.m.

The whole waiting area is very crowded - men climbing up over the bars, pushing, shoving and shouting. It is completely dark inside as none of the neon lights are working.

A big crowd is waiting at the Humanitarian gate which still has not been opened. There is only the girl soldier inside the cabin - no one from the MATAK is present.

Only after two phone calls does the Matak representative come but he immediately lets all those waiting go through without checking.

The other gatesinfo-icon begin to be opened with greater frequency and by about 7:15, the lines have disappeared.
