Egypt arrests former Israeli soldier in Sinai
Egyptian security officials say they have arrested Andre Pshenichnikov, a former sergeant in the Israeli army after he illegally entered from Israel into the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula.


The authorities say the 24 year-old unarmed Israeli entered Egypt near the Taba crossing, and was detained by Egyptian authorities Monday. The officials say he was trying to reach the Gaza Strip through Sinai to fight alongside Palestinians. (AP)
