Egyptian border guards opened fire on Saturday at four African men trying to infiltrate into Israel from an area 5 kilometers away from the Salem terminal. An Egyptian border police spokesperson said that borer policemen fired some warning shots, and that three surrendered immediately while the fourth tried to escape, which pushed the policemen to kill him.

The captured immigrants said that each of them paid 1000 USD to smugglers in order to help them illegally enter Israel to search for work.
