Egyptian Prime Minister Hazem Beb-lawi has said Islamist militants in the Sinai Peninsula are becoming a threat to foreign tourists.

Officials say they are taking seriously a reported ultimatum by Islamist militant group Ansar Beit al-Maq-dis for tourists to leave the country.

The threat was reportedly made on a private Twitter account affiliated with the group.

The Egyptian government has struggled against rising militancy in the Sinai.

The Twitter message gave all tourists until Thursday to leave Egypt or face attacks.
