CAIRO, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Egyptian army managed on Monday to rescue four tourists who got lost in a mountainous area in South Sinai's Saint Catherine city, while three others were found dead and one is still missing, the military spokesperson said in a statement.

Colonel Ahmed Mohamed Ali said that the eight tourists have been missing since Saturday and he did not mention their nationalities.

"They were stuck at the Mount Valley area in Saint Catherine city due to the bad weather and the rough geographic nature of the area," the military spokesman added.

He noted that the army chief and defense minister Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi has ordered a special rescue aircraft besides patrols of border guards to comb the area until the survivors were found.
