Israeli kidnapped in Egypt
Amir Omar Hasan, a 23-year-old Israeli-Arab was kidnapped together with a Norwegian citizen by a gang of Bedouins while vacationing in Sinai. Ahead of the Passover holiday the Counter Terrorism Bureau’s issued a travel advisory with a serious warning for the Sinai Peninsula, where there is a high risk of terrorist attacks and kidnappings. Hopefully he will be released soon and unharmed. It seems a variety of negotiations are going on to try to secure his safe release. He was able to talk briefly with his family yesterday. Hopes and prayers.
