EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) -- A leader of the Jihadist movement in the Sinai peninsula threatened Saturday to kidnap officers of the police and the Egyptian army.

Kamal Al-Hafni threatened to kidnap officers of the police and army unless they released his brother Ahmad al-Hafni, who was detained on Thursday, security officials said.

According to the officials, al-Hafni phoned a police station in el-Arish and threatened to bomb administration headquarters in northern Sinai and kidnap security officers.

He gave the police 72 hours beginning from Thursday and ending Saturday, they said.

The warning has prompted Egyptian officials to declare a state of alert in the Sinai.

On Wednesday Mohammad Abdullah Abed al-Rahman, a well-known leader in a Jihadist organization, was detained by the Egyptian authorities.

Al-Rahman is accused of plotting clashes between the police and the army.
