Egyptian police shoot and kill African woman trying to enter Israel

Egyptian border police shot and killed an African woman Sunday who was trying to cross illegally into Israel with a group of other migrants, a local medical official said. Police were trying to determine the identity and nationality of the woman who was killed, said Emad Kharboush, a medical official at el-Arish hospital near the Israeli border. An Eritrean migrant was wounded during the shooting, and eight other Eritreans, including five children, escaped unhurt but were later arrested, Kharboush added.
