Egyptian border guards fatally shot an African man and wounded a woman trying to cross the border with Israel on Tuesday.

Egyptian security and hospital officials said the dead man, an Ethiopian, and the Eritrean woman ignored warning shots. They said the other migrants gave themselves up and were detained. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
