Police and intelligence agents raided several alleged terrorist safe houses and arrested 10 foreign nationals, including some from Arab countries, sources said Saturday.

The raids Friday night followed reports Albanian intelligence agents and the CIA had launched a nationwide manhunt for suspects involved in terror attacks in Egypt, including the November 1997 massacre of 62 people in Luxor.

During the sweep, authorities found bulletproof vests, fake passports, maps, radio transmitters and electronic devices, a police source said on condition of anonymity.

The same source said the 10 were citizens of Arab countries, but another source later told The Associated Press the detainees also included citizens of non-Arab countries.
