Sudanese security forces rescue missing Egyptian patrol, says Egypt army
The Egyptian army did not immediately respond to questions over whether the soldiers had been captured or say how they had disappeared.
"The Egyptian armed forces extend their thanks and appreciation to the Sudanese armed forces and the security services for helping return the missing patrol," the Egyptian military statement said. It gave no further details.
Egypt is fighting an Islamist insurgency in its Sinai Peninsula but has also fought militants coming across its long Western border with Libya.
It has carried out air strikes against militants inside Libya occasionally since its neighbour descended into factional fighting in the years following the 2011 civil war that ousted Muammar Gaddafi.
Cairo supports the Libyan National Army (LNA) of commander Khalifa Haftar who dominates eastern Libya.
