Americans Released from Sinai Abduction

Two Americans who were abducted, Wednesday, in the Sinai Peninsula, were released Thursday afternoon and turned over to Egyptian security forces.

The tourists were abducted by armed Bedouin - apparently drug dealers - who unsuccessfully tried to use the captives to gain the freedom of jailed mates from prison.
