Egypt permitted an Israeli army patrol to cross into the Sinai Peninsula and evacuate African refugees who were shot by Egyptian troops as they were trying to scale the wall along the border, the Arab-language daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Thursday.

While some of them were shot by Egyptian troops, others managed to cross into Israel though they were later arrested.
