Egyptian security forces in Sinai searched Saturday for two men suspected of planning a terror attack against tourists in the peninsula, Reuters reported. The two Sudanese men were believed to have entered Egypt over its border with Sudan. "The police distributed notices to security departments in Sinai and Suez Canal provinces describing a small truck suspected of carrying quantities of explosives," a security source said. The two are "resolved to carry out terror attacks against tourist establishments in Sinai," police believe. Many private cars were also being searched in the border area between north and south Sinai, security officials said.
