An Arab-Israeli man from Nazareth who was kidnapped by Bedouin in Egypt was released.

Amir Omar Hassan arrived in Israel on Tuesday after being released by his captors. A Norwegian woman abducted at the same time also was released.

Hassan, a student at Ben Gurion University, told Israeli media that he and Ingvild Selvik were physically assaulted and threatened.

Their captors wanted Egyptian authorities to release two of their relatives, who are being held in a prison in northeastern Egypt on drug charges, according to Haaretz.

Security in the Sinai has deteriorated since the 2011 coup in Egypt that deposed President Hosni Mubarak.
