200 Beduins demonstrate near Israel-Egypt border

An Egyptian security official said that about 200 Beduin demonstrated along the Egypt-Israel border to protest the police shooting death of a fellow Beduin. The official said that the police withdrew from the area and didn't confront the demonstrators who were firing guns in the air during Monday's protest south of Rafah in the Sinai Peninsula. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media. The official said that police were chasing two Beduin smugglers in a car in a hilly area in the Sinai when one of the Bedouin was fatally shot earlier Monday. The other was injured.
