Arrived 05:45.
Long queues. Only 3 gatesinfo-icon open as usual at this time.  People waiting quietly.
Policeman who is not prepared to talk to us.
We ring matak several times to express the absurdity of two gates not functioning. At 06:00 humanitarian gate still closed.
06:15.  Change of guard.
The policeman, though aggressive,  turns out to be efficient. The other two gates are opened and people are let in at a consistent rate. Humanitarian gate opens. The policeman is very attentive to the situation and things move at a good pace. We leave at 07:30
