Six refugees from Sudan were caught Tuesday attempting to infiltrate the Israeli-Egyptian border. Among the six were a mother and two of her children. The six said that they were trying to enter Israel in search of employment and a safe haven, Army Radio reported. Sudan, which is situated due south of Egypt, has been embroiled in civil wars for all but ten years since achieving independence in 1956. Since 1983, the war and war- and famine-related effects have resulted in more than 2 million deaths and over 4 million people displaced.
