Egyptian border guards kill African migrant near border with Israel

An Egyptian medical official says border guards have killed an African migrant trying to cross illegally into Israel. Imad Kharboush, head of the emergency unit at El-Arish Hospital, says border guards shot the 27-year-old migrant Friday, injuring him in the knee. The shooting occurred about 10 kilometers south of the Rafah crossing with the Gaza Strip. Kharboush says the man bled to death. Many African migrants have tried to cross into Israel to seek political asylum and jobs. They are often helped by Bedouin human traffickers.
