Egypt officials: Traffickers shoot 2 migrants near Rafah

Nov. 13, 2011 6:30 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2011 2:08 P.M.)
EL-ARISH (Maan) -- Two migrants came under gunfire near the Egyptian border attempting to enter Israel on Sunday, Egyptian security sources said.

Security officials told Ma'an they believe human traffickers shot at the two Sudanese men, suggesting that they had not paid sums levied by smugglers to cross the border.

Haron Younis Adam, 43, was wounded in the foot, and Abdul-Rahim Muhammad Abdul-Nur, 29, was shot in the arm, they said.

The men surrendered to Egyptian authorities and were transferred to an Egyptian hospital, officials added.

The men arrived in Cairo on Aug. 8 before attempting to enter Israel near the western border town of Rafah to look for work, a Ma'an correspondent said.
