15 migrants shot dead in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula

Egyptian police have found the bodies of 15 African migrants who appear to have been shot dead in the northern Sinai Peninsula, officials say.

Unconfirmed reports say most of the victims were Sudanese.

It is not yet clear who attacked the group, near the town of Rafah on the border with Gaza.

There is constant tension in the area, where the Egyptian army is trying to crush an insurgency by the Islamic State (IS) militants.

Eight migrants were found alive but wounded in the incident on Sunday, the Associated Press news agency reported.

    This needs to be retweeted every five minutes to every BLM jackass that tweeted #FuckParis.

    • Arab Muslims do not much care for Blacks.
