Tourists kidnapped in Egypt

A group of eleven Europeans has been kidnapped in southern Egypt and taken to Sudan. According to CNN, the eleven are five Italians, five Germans and a Romanian and the kidnapping took place on September 16. Four Egyptians were also kidnapped. Let's go to the videotape.

Earlier on Monday, the Israeli foreign ministry and the Egyptian government denied a report that two Israelis were among those kidnapped. Israel's counter-terrorism bureau has warned Israelis not to visit Egypt out of fear that they might be kidnapped by terror organizations. But curiously, I could not access the video above through YouTube (even though I'm in Boston now, my computer carries an Israeli IP address and I am often shut out of videos that are 'not available to your country'). I got the video directly from CNN.

Had no idea of such internet restrictions on Israelis, but for those who prefer a YouTube link, YouTube: 11 tourists kidnapped in Egypt, 9/22.

There are ways to mask (hide) your IP address. Anyway, Israel is always discriminated against.
