El-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) -- Egyptian authorities said seven Eritrean nationals were detained south of the Israeli border on Tuesday, allegedly attempting to infiltrate Israel near north Gaza's Kerem Shalom crossing.

Following the detentions, police said Egyptian authorities issued a warning to the Eritrean Embassy in Cairo, demanding that officials better screen possible candidates and identify migrant workers.

The group of men were said to have been identified several kilometers from the border zone, and police said they were detained without incident.

Police said the men told interrogators that they were en route to Israel where they intended to seek work.
