Egyptian medical sources reported Saturday that a Sudanese man was killed and three others were wounded by Egyptian Border Police Fire while trying tin infiltrate into Israel to seek work. The sources said that Egyptian Border Police officers noticed six Sudanese persons trying to cross the border fence between Egypt and Israel, and opened fire at them after refusing to surrender.

The incident took place south of the Kerem Shalom (Karem Abu Salem) Crossing.

Two more men were arrested and confessed that each paid $6000 to Egyptian smugglers in order to help them enter Israel to look for work.

Last week, Egyptian security forces shot dead a Sudanese migrant and arrested two others while attempting to cross into Israel.

At least twenty-one African migrants were shot and killed by Egypt in the first six months of this year; hundreds of migrants were wounded and arrested.
