Egypt mulls arming Sinai Bedouin security force

Published: 10.08.12, 22:49 / Israel News

In Egypt's restive Sinai, Bedouin leaders are urging the government to arm their tribesmen by creating a local security force in the peninsula, where the state is struggling to impose its authority and uproot Islamic militants who have attacked Egyptian troops and neighboring Israel.

 

But the proposal, which the government says it is considering, raises fears that the Bedouin could become a new militia, only adding to the turmoil in the peninsula. (AP)
