Hostages taken at Gilf al-Kebir

The first reports of this situation said it happened at Aswan but actually it is nowhere near any tourist destination. It appears a group travelling off road in a remote part of the desert near the Sudan/Libya border has been kidnapped. There was another incident in February where the group where left alone but their vehicles were taken. Thankfully nothing like that happens along the Nile Valley where security is high and tourists well protected. So not Luxor news at all
