Search for patrol missing along Egypt-Sudan border continues



Aerial and ground searches for a missing border guard patrol continue near Egypt's southern border with Sudan, in coordination with neighboring countries, the Armed Forces Morale Affairs Department said Wednesday.

A military source said on the same day that contact with the patrol had been lost, but did not provide details.

The region is divided into the area between Owainat and the Gilf Kebir, which has been secured by the armed forces since the kidnapping of German tourists in the area, and the region from Abu Simbel to Halaib and Shalatin neighboring Sudan that is also secured by the military.
