CAPTURED SINAI HOSTAGES UPDATE: Negotiations for the release of the Norwegian female and Israeli have so far not bred any result, Sinai Now reports, Saturday.



Egyptian security forces have left the city of al-Arish in armoured vehicles, and were making their way southwards to the central part on the peninsula where the hostages are believed held.

Security forces have declined to comment on the purpose of the move south, the local paper also reports.

The kidnappers have demanded the release of two tribesmen captured for illegal drugs smuggling.

It is believed negotiations are continuing, but no result has come out of talks between the parties so far.

"We've reinforced our Cairo embassy with two people and three more are on the way to keep up the high level of activity since Friday," Svein Michelsen, Norwegian Foreign Ministry press spokesperson tells The Foreigner.

"We continue to be in touch with Egyptian authorities, who are handling the situation," he adds.
