Egypt seized an Israeli yacht off the Sinai Peninsula and held the four people on board for six hours for entering Egyptian waters illegally. One of the four, Nissim Hai, told Israeli Army Radio that he sailed about 200 yards into Egyptian waters without the necessary permit. "We didn't have a permit. We took a chance," he said. "It's the last time. I'm never going near there again." Hai said he, his wife and another Israeli couple were taken to an Egyptian Coast Guard base on Coral Island on the Gulf of Aqaba.

Egypt seized an Israeli yacht off the Sinai Peninsula on Friday but released it five hours later after urgent diplomatic contacts, a senior Israeli official said. "The yacht was released just moments ago and is now on its way back to its port at Eilat," the official said, adding that there were at least 31 people on board.
