Police arrested two of the kidnappers and sent them to jail.
 
Ezzat Ibrahim, Coptic activist in Minya, said that police could reach the kidnappers by tracking their phone calls to the families of the kidnapped Copts since they demanded a ransom of 600.000 LE in order to release their sons. The rest of the gang could escape before police arrived, and the matter is still under investigation.
