Police on Sunday arrested three Egyptians who were trying to sneak across the border into Israel, apparently to seek work, Egyptian security officials said. The three men were detained early Sunday while approaching the border south of Kerem Shalom, a crossing at the junction of the Gaza Strip, Egypt and Israel, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media. The men planned to seek work in Israel, the officials added. They have been detained in El Arish, the provincial capital of north Sinai.
