Korean tourists in Sinai had close call

3 Korean women were kidnapped by "tribesmen" and thankfully let go:
An Egyptian security official says that three South Korean women were released a day after being kidnapped in the Sinai peninsula by a group of armed tribesmen.

The head of security in South Sinai Maj. Gen. Mohammed Naguib said that the three women and their Egyptian tour guide were released on Saturday after tribal elders pressured the captors to release them.

He says the captors had kidnapped the women on Friday to pressure Egyptian authorities to release their detained relatives.

It was the latest in a series of kidnappings in Sinai. The peninsula has seen a surge in lawlessness over the last year, but abducted tourists are rarely harmed.

Two American women kidnapped last week said afterward that their captors served them tea and dried fruit.
Was that before or after they left the area that they told this? I don't know, but reports like these can't be taken at face value. And if the tourists had been Jewish, there's every chance fate would be worse. With the rising of Islamofascism in Egypt, even Sinai is not a safe place to visit anymore.
