Two Americans kidnapped in Egypt
Cairo: Two American tourists have been kidnapped by unidentified armed men from near the Red Sea resort of Dahab, Egyptian television reported.
The two Americans are in their early 30s. They were reportedly taken by armed bedouins when they were travelling by car to the resort of Nuweiba.
The Maan news agency identified the Americans as Jonathan Shizarlasky and Carter Brabon. They were seized at gunpoint from a car near the Hilton hotel and taken to a mountainous area.
Police said the kidnappers are demanding the release of a drug dealer arrested a day before in return for freeing the Americans.
