Masked gunmen killed 13 Egyptian guards Sunday at a security checkpoint along the border with Gaza and Israel, attacking with automatic rifles and weapons mounted on their vehicles, a security official said.
"After investigations, we have corroborating information that these children are used as soldiers, minesweepers, scouts, spies, messengers, lookouts, cooks and sexual slaves in the case of young girls," he said.
The children are mostly from Mali, Senegal and Niger, he added.
