He's on the road to nowhere

A former Sudanese refugee who wanted to return to his homeland took a wrong turn along the way and found himself in the Ovda air force base by accident, reports www.local.co.il. The man, in his 30s, said that after living in Eilat for the past three years he wanted to go back to his native country, but when he headed for Egypt he went in the wrong direction and mistook the fence around the air force base for the Israel-Egypt border. Soldiers at the base quickly became aware of an intruder and arrested the man, who has been placed in custody pending a hearing at the local magistrates' court.
