North Sinai tribe blocks international road to protest security condition

Hundreds of members of an Arish tribe marched to the North Sinai government building late on Tuesday to protest what they believe is a security failure in the governorate.
Some of the Fawakhreya tribe members blocked the Arish-Rafah international road, setting tires on fire and firing shots into the air, after members of another tribe kidnapped three Fawakhreya members.
The tribe members held a meeting and agreed to block all the main roads, including the one leading to Arish, tribe members said. They also agreed to stage a sit-in at the governorate building.
A official security source told DPA that communications are being held between the government and tribe members to resolve the problem and open the roads.
