CAIRO — An Egyptian police official said Friday that 34 African migrants have been arrested in separate incidents in the Sinai peninsula heading to the border with Israel to try and cross it illegally.

The official said eight Eritreans and nine Ethiopians were caught on pickup trucks belonging to Bedouin traffickers near the town of Nekhil, about 250 miles (400 kilometers) east of the capital, Cairo.

The Bedouins fled from the scene on foot.
