The Egyptian news site "Al - Ahram" reported Saturday that an Arab-Israeli entered Egypt via the Taba Corssing and was arrested and interrogated by Sinai security forces.  

According to the report, the detainee, Ahmed Da'ifi, 33, worked as a cook and lives in Tel Aviv. He also told investigators that he fled from Israel "because he did not feel safe there" and asked for political asylum in Egypt.
