CAIRO: Two Egyptians were deported from Italy Wednesday accompanied by three Italian security officers for violating residency laws, Youm7 reported.
The deportees arrived in Cairo International Airport on an Alitalia plane, a source at the airport told Youm7.
The two men informed the authorities during an investigation they had violated Italian residency laws.
