2 U.S. Tourists Kidnapped in Egypt

Armed Bedouin tribesmen kidnapped two U.S. tourists in the Sinai peninsula on Wednesday, apparently demanding the release of a tribesman in a drugs case. The two men, both American, were taken while driving near the resort of Dahab. The U.S. embassy confirmed the kidnapping on Thursday, but did not give any further details. Egyptian police said they are negotiating for the men’s release.
