Israelis are getting frustrated with Egyptian officials for failing to work out an effective mechanism for deporting the hundreds of African refugees who have illegally infiltrated Israel, the Prime Minister's Office said on Tuesday. More than 50 refugees spent the night in Jerusalem's Wohl Rose Garden opposite the Knesset on Monday, and others are expected to join them. They are expected to remain there until a deal is worked out with the Katziot prison.
