Egyptian forces kill four Africans at Israel border
Egyptian policemen shot dead four African migrants as they tried to infiltrate into Israel on Wednesday, security sources said. According to Reuters, security sources said two more migrants, both Ethiopians, were shot and injured, and one was in a critical condition.
Egyptian police in the Sinai desert have killed at least 12 African migrants at the border since May. Monthly migrant arrests by Egypt at the border have increased this year, rising five-fold in May to 55 and then doubling again to 114 in June and 160 in July, security sources said.
