President Hosni Mubarak rejected a Libyan diplomatic peace initiative, terming it an attempt to lead Egypt into dropping its guard. Col. Moammar Kadafi, Libya's leader, announced that his country is reopening its border with Egypt and withdrawing its troops from the frontier. Mubarak scoffed at the move, saying that neither Egypt nor Libya has troops on the border. The border region was the site of a brief 1977 war between the two nations and has been closed since.
