Two tourists kidnapped in Sinai

An Israeli and a Norwegian tourist were kidnapped by armed Bedouin tribesmen in Egypt's Sinai peninsula as they were travelling between the southern resort of Taba, on the border with Israel, and Dahab. The kidnappers are normally Bedouin who want to trade the hostages for jailed tribesmen. Travellers should exercise extreme caution if travelling overland in this area. Several countries caution their citizens to consider avoiding such travel.
