"Egypt should stop shooting migrants attempting to sneak across the barbed wire border into Israel, a desperate journey that has gone from dangerous to deadly, Human Rights Watch said Wednesday in a new report."

"The report also accused Israel of forcibly returning at least 139 African migrants to Egypt, where they risk arrest and deportation. ‘Egypt should stop shooting migrants who pose no threat and deporting others to possible torture,’ said Joe Stork, Human Rights Watch’s deputy Middle East director. ‘Israel should not be forcibly returning people to Egypt, where they are detained arbitrarily and even deported to abusive home countries.’"
