Brits Kidnapped By Bedouin In Egypt: Reports
The Foreign Office is investigating reports a British couple were kidnapped by Bedouin tribesmen in Egypt.

The two were said to be taken in the Sinai Peninsula as they made their way by car from Cairo to the popular Red Sea resort of Sharm El Sheikh.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are trying to clarify the situation at this stage."
