UN slams Egypt for killing African migrants

The United Nations has slammed Egypt for killing 60 African migrants trying to reach Israel through the Sinai Desert since 2007.
In a statement Tuesday, UN rights chief Navi Pillay told Egypt to stop firing at Ethiopians, Eritreans and Sudanese near the Egypt-Israel border.
She said she knows "no other country where so many unarmed migrants and asylum seekers appear to have been deliberately killed."
