Security forces have prevented 10 migrants from Sudan and Horn of Africa
from crossing the border into Israel.

A police patrol arrested the migrants in Central Sinai, and they are
currently being held in Arish Central Prison, a security source told German
news agency DPA.

The migrants included five Sudanese nationals, three Eritreans and two
Ethiopians. The migrants reportedly said they were attempting to cross the
border in search of work, and that each of them paid US$3,000 to smugglers
for help crossing the border.

Thousands of migrants, many of them refugees from Sudan and the Horn of
Africa, have crossed into Israel from Egypt in search of work, and dozens
have been killed by Egyptian border guards while trying to do so in recent
years.
