Something odd - section break? - in a word document

I've just been asked about something in a word document which no one recognises nor can get rid of.
Word documentWhen I put the cursor over the line the cursor changes to something like the highlighted section (I couldn't capture the cursor image).  However the line won't drag to be repositioned.  I can't seem to select the line to do anything with it.  It also appears in the middle of a document, even in one place in the middle of a paragraph of text.

Basically: What is it and how can I get rid of it ?

This is how you create it:
 
Go to a new line, enter *** and press return.
 
This is how you get rid of it.
 
Highlight the line above, go to Home - Paragraph - Borders and select No Borders.

If it weren't for the cursor, I would say that it is the position of a page break in draft view.

It is.  I can create it.  Removing it is weird.  The one I created I can remove as you stated.  The ones in the document just move to above the line / section I highlight.  Selecting the complete document and then the no borders appears to have removed all of them.
