CAIRO - Bedouins in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula kidnapped 10 Fijian members of a multinational peacekeeping force on Monday, demanding that Egypt free fellow tribesmen from prison, Egyptian security sources said.

The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) could not immediately be reached for comment.

The remote Sinai region has descended further into lawlessness since a popular uprising ousted Egypt's president more than a year ago and threw the security apparatus into disarray.
