Beduin kidnappers seize three Koreans in Egypt's Sinai

CAIRO - Beduin tribesmen in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula kidnapped three Korean women and their Egyptian translator, in the third such incident this month, security sources said on Friday.
The Beduin hostage takers, who complain of neglect from Cairo, want members of their tribe released from prison, the sources said.
The gunmen intercepted a tour bus traveling near the Saint Catherine monastery in central Sinai towards Sharm e-Sheikh. Twenty-seven other tourists were on the bus but were not taken. The youngest of the hostages was 51.
