Authorities seriously injured two Turkish teenagers when they shot at them as they tried to cross the Egyptian border into Israel on Monday, security and medical officials said. Police later arrested them, along with their father, the officials said. Three Sudanese refugees were also arrested Monday for allegedly trying to cross the border. The twin 14-year-old teenagers and their father were trying to cross into Israel in search of jobs, said the security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The official said this was the first time Egyptian authorities arrested Turkish citizens at the border.
