Sinai explodes into violence after years of chronic poverty and alienation | World news | The Guardian

Ahmed Abdo was still asleep in his hut at the gate of the Aqua-Sun beach resort on Egypt's Red Sea coast when 20 masked men carrying guns burst in.

Abdo, 30, and his two colleagues were tied up, their mobile phones taken. The intruders, members of the Bedouin Tarabeen tribe, demanded money - 4m Egyptian pounds (£420,000) - from the owner in compensation for the land on which the resort was built. It belonged, they said, to the Tarabeen.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
