Egyptian security deny arresting Gazan fishermen

Feb. 14, 2010 2:38 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 15, 2010 12:06 P.M.)
Al-A’rish- Ma'an – Egyptian authorities denied arresting four Gazan fishermen off the southern coast of Rafah on Friday, senior Egyptian security sources told Ma'an on Sunday.

"The territorial water between Egypt and Gaza did not witness any Palestinian violations [prompting an arrest] over that period of time," the sources said.

"Egyptian coast guards deal with Palestinian in a humane way; if they cross into Egyptian territorial water, they are turned away without arrest because of the inhumane circumstances Palestinian fishermen are living under."

Sources added that any arrests would be announced through the legal channels within the Egyptian security services.
