Public prosecutor Abdel Meguid Mahmoud on Wednesday urged the Interior
Ministry, the National Security Agency, the General Intelligence Services
and the Armed Forces to search for the police officers who were kidnapped in
Sinai in last February while guarding the Egyptian border in Rafah.

News reports have said that four policemen are missing. Families of the
missing policemen have accused the administration of President Mohamed Morsy
of neglecting their case, as it has been nearly two years since they were
abducted.

A statement from Mahmoudís office said Tuesday that the wives of the
officers filed a complaint saying the Islamist kidnappers handed them over
to the Palestinian Army of Islam in return for US$150,000 for each, in order
to pressure the Egyptian government to release detained militants from the
Palestinian Army of Islam.
