Egyptian Border Guards Shoot 3 Migrants in Sinai

by Al-Masry Al-Youm | 3 August 2012

Egyptian border guards shot three Eritreans who were attempting to cross into Israel on Thursday, according to state-run news agency MENA.

Security sources said the guards warned Doghlo Kilany, 24, Bohair Difo'aish, 24, and Mer Bayer Samara, 23, before shooting them in the leg, abdomen and arm, respectively. The three undocumented migrants were transferred to Nakl Hospital in Sinai.
Thousands of Eritreans each year flee the country, with many heading for Israel. Last year 16,816 Africans entered Israel illegally from Egypt, according to Israeli government data.
