Addis Ababa, 02 June 2014 (WIC) - Seventy-seven Ethiopians arrived on Saturday at Cairo International Airport on their way to being deported back to their country.

They entered Egypt’s Aswan governorate via Sudan and were attempting to sneak into Israel.

Security sources at the airport said the deportees include three children. Interrogations proved that they were seeking arrival at Sinai ahead of infiltrating into Israel to work there.
