Sinai: Armed men kidnap 7 soldiers, police
Gunmen in northern Sinai kidnapped seven soldiers and policemen in an apparent attempt to secure the release of their relatives from prison. Due to kidnapping, the Egyptian army and security forces are on increased alert in the Sinai Peninsula.

 

Soldiers fanned out in the area near the border with the Gaza Strip due to the fear that the hostages would be smuggled into Gaza. (Roi Kais)
