Egypt arrests gang selling false passports to Palestinians

March 23, 2013 2:44 P.M. (Updated: March 24, 2013 7:15 P.M.)
EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities on Saturday arrested a gang accused of selling false Egyptian citizenship documents to Palestinians from Gaza, Ma'an's correspondent said.

The gang, consisting of three Palestinians and an Egyptian man and his sister, was arrested after Egyptian forces found them in possession of forged birth certificates, passports and other documents ready to be sold to Palestinians seeking citizenship.

The woman told interrogators that she had given lots of false documents to Palestinians seeking Egyptian citizenship. She also admitted helping Palestinians obtain citizenship through various contacts, in exchange for money.
