Egyptian security forces on Wednesday killed an unarmed Sudanese man who tried to enter Israel illegally during an exchange of gun fire between Egyptian border guards and a human trafficking gang.

The smugglers opened fire at the border guards, who were trying to prevent their truck from infiltrating the border into Israel.

None of the Egyptians were wounded in the incident, and the human traffickers fled the scene with at least four African immigrants.

Since the beginning of 2010, Egyptian security forces have killed three Africans who tried to enter Israel illegally.
