06:10 The pedestrian lines extended into the parking lot, a situation which remained throughout our stay in spite of the good efforts of the soldiers on duty, to try to move the people through smoothly and quickly.  On the other side in the humanitarian line, the people moved through rather quickly and without difficulty.

Once again, we must state clearly that there are too many people attempting to use this crossing and too few lanes open to accommodate the growing numbers passing through.  The cars were processed quickly, a positive improvement from the past few years.
