African migrants try to get to Israel...shot by Egyptians...
Why don't these migrants want to live in Egypt???
Egyptian police shot dead two African migrants on Sunday as they tried to slip across the Sinai peninsula desert border to Israel, a security source said.
The source said a police patrol ordered them to stop and opened fire when they did not. The dead men were not carrying identification documents but were believed to be African.
Egyptian police have stepped up efforts in recent months to control the border with Israel, after an increase in human trafficking through Egypt. At least 19 migrants were killed by Egyptian border guards last year and seven this year.
