Tripoli, 13 May:
Two men — an Egyptian and a Sudanese — were killed today when the vehicle they were travelling in . . .[restrict]hit a mine on the Libyan side of the border with Egypt. Twenty-nine others, all but two of them Egyptians, were wounded in the blast. The men are said to be illegal immigrants who were in a three—vehicle convoy that had entered a minefield after it crossed the frontier. They took the route to avoid border controls.
The injured, who included two Sudanese, were treated in Mersa Matruh. [/restrict]
