Egyptian police kill one Sudanese woman, arrest second with infant border
Egyptian police have fatally shot a Sudanese woman and arrested a second one who was with an infant as they tried to cross into Israel. A police official says Tuesday's shooting took place a few kilometers south of the Rafah border crossing point. He says the Sudanese women were from the wartorn Darfur and refused to surrender when Egyptian police warned them. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he isn't allowed to talk to the media, says the police failed to capture the traffickers. The women paid about US$500 each for shelter and passage from Cairo across Egypt's Sinai Peninsula to the Israeli border.
