Dozens of passengers missing in Nile ferry accident
Cairo: Dozens of passengers are missing after two ferries collided in the Rosetta branch of the Nile in northern Egypt.
One boat capsized and some of its passengers fell into the water, Beheira Governor Mohamed Sharawi said. Six passengers were rescued and search is underway for six to eight others who are still missing, he said.
Reasons for the accident are yet to be known and an investigation has already been launched into the incident. It is, however, not clear how many people were on board. But one of the ferries, according to eyewitness, had around 65 passengers on board while the other was not carrying any passengers.
A ferry sinking in 2006 had killed more than 1,000 people in Egypt.
