EL-ARISH, Egypt - Police have killed two Bedouin smugglers who were trying to sneak across the Sinai desert border into Israel, a senior police officer said yesterday.

Suleiman Salama, 21, and Salem Musleh, 38, were shot dead Monday night while approaching the Egyptian-Israel border in the district of Arijan, said General Ali Makhamer of the police in Northern Sinai province. Both men were Bedouin living in the Sinai peninsula.

The bodies were found with packets of cigarettes and tobacco that the men were presumably intending to sell on the Israeli side, Makhamer said.
