CAIRO: An Egyptian Interior Ministry official says the ministry is changing a rule that had kept most Sinai Bedouins from joining the police force.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters, added the ministry is for the first time setting a quota for Bedouins from the Sinai Peninsula to enter the Police Academy. He did not say what the quota was.

Bedouins have long complained that they face arbitrary arrest simply because they live close to the volatile Gaza Strip and Israel. Positions in the nation’s security forces were previously not open to Bedouins whose fathers had been arrested, barring many from such jobs.
