The Foreign Ministry on Tuesday thanked the Egyptian Authorities for their "quick, efficient and successful action for the release of the kidnapped Israeli and Norwegian tourists" who were seized in the Sinai Peninsula four days ago.

Kidnappers released the pair following negotiations mediated by Bedouin leaders between authorities and the group that abducted them.

The two have been identified as Amir Hassan, a 34-year-old Israeli Arab from Nazareth who studies at Ben Gurion University in Beersheva, and Norwegian Ingvild Selvik Ask, aged 32.

"We all share the happiness of the Hassan family upon the homecoming of their son, Amir, whom we greet with a 'Welcome Back,'" the Foreign Ministry spokesman said in statement.
