A 23-year-old Israeli man was detained in Egypt on Friday for unknown reasons, Army Radio reported.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry confirmed that Andre Pshenichnikov from Bat Yam was detained upon arrival to the country four days ago, and said that it is making efforts to find out more details.

Pshenichnikov's mother told Army Radio that her son got a visa to enter Egypt last week, and was scheduled to meet friends from France in Cairo.

The man was reportedly a left-wing activist, who lived in the Palestinian Authority and was denied a request for Palestinian citizenship, according to Army Radio.
