CAIRO - Four armed men attacked a hotel in an Egyptian Red Sea resort popular with Israeli holidaymakers before fleeing when police returned fire, security sources and witnesses said on Tuesday.

The men may have been trying to rob a jewelery shop at the hotel in the Taba Heights resort in South Sinai, the security sources said.

There were no injuries in the attack but several Israelis staying at the hotel cut short their vacations to return to Israel, they said.
