African migrants tortured in Sinai

Egyptian border control officers have arrested 68 African migrants trying to cross into Israel.

But many other migrants travelling through the Sinai region are picked up by Bedouin gangs who are smuggling drugs, weapons and even people into the peninusla.

Ake Mehari, a migrant from Eritrea told Al Jazeera: “They drove us to Sinai. They tortured me because I could not pay the money. Then they started beating me. I begged for mercy, but the traffickers wouldn’t listen. They just wanted the money.”

Mehari and the others were dreaming of a better future after escaping compulsary military service in Eritrea.

They say they would never have embarked on this journey if they had known how it would end.
