Matrouh security authorities aborted an attempt by 71 persons to illegally sneak out of the country into the Libyan territories through using rough mountainous and desert routes, a security source said.

All 71 of them, including 10 Sudanese and Syrians, were arrested during a joint operation by the security authorities in Matrouh and Salloum and the public and national security agencies, the official said.

They are now being held in police custody pending a probe, he added.
