Over the past year, Egypt has arrested dozens of illegal immigrants, mostly Africans, trying to cross into Israel from the Sinai in search of work.

 

The 250km frontier between Israel and Egypt is notoriously porous and often used by drugs smugglers and people traffickers.

 

In February, Amnesty International, a human rights group, slammed Egypt’s use of force at the border.
