EL-ARISH, Egypt  — Egyptian security officials on Monday said border police have killed an Eritrean woman trying to sneak across the border into Israel.

Officials say the 20-year-old woman did not heed warnings from Egyptian border guards before they shot her in the chest and arms as she was trying to cross into Israel some 65 miles (100 kilometers) south of the Rafah border town.

Six other African migrants were taken into custody.
