Armed Bedouin tribesmen in Egypt's Sinai peninsula abducted on Friday two tourists, an Israeli man and a Norwegian woman, as they travelled between two beach resorts, police said.
Six gunmen intercepted the tourists' car and forced them into their truck, the officials said. The pair had been travelling between the southern resort of Taba, on the border with Israel, and Dahab.
A police official said the woman was a 31-year-old Norwegian. Police had initially said she was Belgian.
