Jihadists, Salafists released; Bedouin, Palestinians remain in detention

The Ministry of Interior on Thursday released 42 prisoners associated with Egyptian Jihadist and Salafist groups two days after the release by authorities of 109 prisoners associated with other Islamist groups.

Meanwhile, well-informed sources said that 45 detained Bedouin tribesmen from the Sinai Peninsula, along with a number of Palestinian prisoners, still remained in detention in Egypt's high-security Al-Aqrab prison.

The prisoners have reportedly been on a hunger strike for the last four days.
