Security in Egypt's Sinai a cause for concern

Kidnappings, killings and robberies have become commonplace in the lawless desert region.



    In the northern Egyptian region of Sinai, kidnappings, killings, robberies and armed smuggling are all common place, as the region is suffering from a lack of security, especially following the revolution.

    Authorities in Egypt have long failed to adequately develop the area and provide security. It is a hard and rugged terrain to control with many armed Bedouin communities.

    However, the police chief insists the situation is now under control.
