60 Africans infiltrate Israel

Israeli soldiers captured 60 Africans after they crossed the border from Egypt. Officials said the infiltrators, captured on Wednesday night, would be handed over to the Migration Authority, Yediot Achronot reported. Thousands of Africans have infiltrated Israel since 2007, though only a small number are said to be from Darfur, who are defined by the Prime Minister’s Office as refugees.
