More Migrants Shot Dead at Egypt-Israel Border (News)

Egyptian police shot and killed four African migrants and wounded two others near the Egypt-Israel border.

“Monthly migrant arrests by Egypt at the border have surged this year, rising five-fold in May to 55 and then doubling again to 114 in June and 160 in July, security sources said. That compares to just six arrests in January.”

The increased numbers of migrants attempting to enter Israel from Egypt is believed to be related in part to the Italy-Libya agreement which has resulted in the forcible returns of hundreds of migrants who are interdicted in the Mediterranean.
