More than 1,000 Egyptian Beduins staged an anti-government protest near the Israeli border Thursday following the recent deaths of two Beduins in clashes with Egyptian police. The protesters complained of government mistreatment and called on Israeli soldiers to allow them in as refugees or take them to a third country. The soldiers kept their distance to avoid a confrontation with the Beduins, who traditionally carry firearms. Momentum for the demonstration started after the Middle East News Agency reported that two Beduins were killed Wednesday when their car flipped over near a police checkpoint in the middle of the Sinai Peninsula. Police said in the report that they exchanged fire with the two men after they failed to stop at the checkpoint.
