Egyptian police are tracking down 10 members of an alleged Hizbullah cell believed to be hiding out with the Beduin in the Sinai Peninsula, a security official said Monday. The men are thought to be Lebanese and connected to a group of 49 members of an alleged Hizbullah cell that the government announced is plotting to attack Egyptian institutions and Israeli tourists. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said the men had taken shelter in the central Sinai town of al-Nakhl. Authorities said they feared the suspects may either try to escape north into Gaza some 120 miles away through the many tunnels or head south to the tourist resorts on the coast.
