Gaza, Alray - Seven Egyptian soldiers and policemen abducted on the Sinai peninsula last week have been released, the Egyptian army has said in a statement.

“The seven kidnapped soldiers are now on their way to Cairo after they were released thanks to the work of military intelligence, and in cooperation with the noble tribal leaders of Sinai," the army said in a message posted online on Wednesday.

The army had deployed hundreds of soldiers to Sinai, along with dozens of armoured vehicles and helicopters, in the wake of the kidnapping.
